Mercedes Guadalupe's story

Mercedes Guadalupe Martinez D. R. is 40 years old and lives with her husband (who is in sales) and their three children ages 14, 13, and 2. She and her family live in the municipality of Aguilares in the San Salvador department.

Mercedes has a store selling basic needs and perishable items, which is located in her home. This is quite beneficial since she can run the business while looking after her kids and tending to household chores. Her business is one of the best stocked in the area with the most customers due to the excellent service and reasonable prices.

Mercedes is requesting a loan through which she can invest in her business, increasing inventories and so better serve her customers. She is a very responsible woman who is very thankful to have her own business that allows her to meet her children's needs.
