Vilma Azucena's story

Vilma is a 36-year-old shopkeeper, a person known for her happiness, good disposition and good service. She started her business with the intention of gaining the necessary financial resources to support and sustain her household.

She lives in an area that was very affected by the armed conflict, therefore the loan represents greater risk. Vilma would like to ask for a loan to carry out renovations in her business, to expand it and buy shelving and inventory such as staple goods, groceries, and personal and household bathroom items.
