Juana Concepción's story

Juana Concepción H. D. M. is 53 years old and resides in Los Planes D. Rendero with her husband Jose Roberto Mendez who is 53 years of age and who works as a customs agent. Juana Concepción has a cafeteria where she sells food, drinks and candy. Her business is located at the customs' office of Ilopango, in the same place where her husband works. Juana works every day to contribute, along with her husband, to the household expenses. She is requesting a loan so that she can buy more food for her cafeteria. Because Juana has an excellent reputation for being a very responsible and hardworking person, she has many customers. However, Juana hopes to increase her customer base in order to increase her profits. She is therefore requesting a loan for working capital so that she can purchase more products for her business and cater to the tastes' of many more people and therefore have more demand.
