Blanca Lilian's story
Blanca earns her living running a shop that sells basic necessities. She lives with her children, although they are no longer dependent on her, and she does not have any family members abroad. She attends to and manages her business alone, and it is now several years since she opened the shop. With the income she makes from it she is able to cover her personal costs and other financial commitments. So as to improve her stock, she is seeking a loan to buy staple grains, toilet paper, detergent, soap, bread, and other products to strengthen her business. She hopes that her customers will be better off so that she will be able to make more sales and a better income. Her main difficulty is that the business has good days and bad days. Blanca's dream is to have a stable business that will give her an income that allows her to have a more decent life in the future.
