Tania is 23 years old, single, and has been operating a wholesale grocery store called "Proveedora JRM" (JRM Supplier) for three years. At the store, she sells soda, juice, energy drinks, rum, and other drinks. Tania is a very hard worker and she spends her mornings at a technical school where she is studying to become a systems engineer; she only has three semesters to complete. Tania's father died when she was young, so she began working from a very young age. In the past she has worked as a waitress and at other grocery stores, but now she has her own.

With this loan, Tania will invest in additional merchandise to expand the quality and quantity of product available at her store. This way she will be able to grow her earnings. Tania dreams of finishing her studies and beginning a professional career, all the while helping to care for her mother as her mother ages.
