Tomasa's story

Tomasa states that with the help of the previous loan she was able to have everything necessary to keep selling basic necessities. So she has had a chance to win the preference of her customers and that makes her sales and income stable. She is satisfied that she can reduce her household needs and also meet her financial commitments. No changes are mentioned in her family group.

She is requesting a new loan to buy bread, eggs, drinks, flour, candy, etc. to restock her store inventory. In this way, she will maintain the good service she provides to her customers and will supply their requests. She believes that with the new investment, she can acquire wholesale merchandise and have cash to use for better profits, as the year-end season approaches and she wants to be prepared.

Tomasa wants to keep her business running to survive.
