Modesta A. A. is a 40 year old single mother of 3 children, all of whom are students. She operates a small grocery store out of her home and has been in business for over 21 years. Starting her business wasn’t easy – she still had to look after her children and take care of the family’s living situation. With very little capital, she bought a few racks of candy and started attracting customers.

The loan she is requesting will be used as working capital to buy rice, beans, sugar, oil, detergent and other items. She hopes to expand her grocery store so that she can offer more products to her customers.
