Ariana's story

Ariana S. C. is 22 years old, single and has 1 son, who is her major priority. Her son is 2 years old. She wants the loan to buy inventory for her grocery business. She wishes to give her business adequate maintenance to increase her sales and therefore increase her income; her business is a small grocery store that she established a few years ago. In addition to the store, her family has small cabins for rent. This is not the first time she works on a loan with FUDECOSUR and she is very happy with all the support they have always provided. In the future, she hopes to provide for her son a better quality of life and better financial stability.
