Irma's story

Irma M. Garcia resides in the capital of the country in the municipality of Soyapango. Irma is 33 years old. She is a single mother of three children: 11-year-old Henry, 10-year-old Ingrid, and 9-year-old Brayan. The three children are studying in elementary school. Irma has been able to move forward with her children by way of the earnings that her business generates for her. She has a small store stocked with consumer products which is located in the market on the hill where she lives. Irma’s desire is to continue to stock her business so that she can count on the ability to sell wholesale products as they generate more income. She solicits this loan in order to buy merchandise for her business and count on having great quantities of the products that she offers.
