Dora Judith's story

Mrs. Dora Judith C. makes a living by selling common goods and basic grains, which she has done for ten years. She attends to her store personally, for which it is well run. It is easy to see that during this whole time she has managed it very well. Her business is located on a detour off the street that leads to Planes, Las Trojes. This place is well traveled by students as they make their way to school, which is very close to her business.
Dora is a very well known person in her town, and she knows how to earn her clientele, which has generated a greater demand for the products that she sells. She will use this loan to purchase more merchandise to stock her store, and thereby earn more income to cover her domestic expenses.
