Ismary Cecilia's story

Ismary M. is 35 years old and is the mother of three precious girls. She has been working at her present business for the past year. She has a small grocery store where she sells products like soaps, soft drinks, chicken, pasta, sauces, popcorn, margarine, and many other things. Her store has a great location with a lot of traffic. Ismary buys $474 worth of goods during the week and she sells $586. Her profit is $112 a week. She needs a loan to buy merchandise in bulk, since she can get the merchandise at better prices than the normal prices. She lives with her husband and her three children. Her dream is to have a little market that is all set up with all of the necessary items so that she can serve her customers well.
