but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to buy stock of grains and groceries to allow her to increase her inventory.

Mercedes's story

Mercedes, age 70, has given her whole life for her family in order to get them ahead. Together they have overcome life’s adversities thanks to a store. She was able to establish the store with great effort, patience, and sacrifice. It has generated income to support her children. She works alone every day for ten hours. In looking to be the best family business in the area, she wants to request a loan to buy stock. This will allow her to increase her inventory, and she will buy things like grains and groceries. This way she will overcome difficulties like low sales and the competition. This loan will be a big opportunity to establish the store as the most productive in the neighborhood. It will give her the opportunity to fulfill this dream that she has longed for so much, to buy her own house. Help Mercedes with her business!
