Mercedes Noemy's story

Mercedes Noemy V. is 42 years of age and lives in the department of San Vicente with her three children. Her two younger children are studying and her eldest child works as a carpenter. He is a great help to Mercedes, who has had to work very hard to earn a living as a single mother and meet her children's needs alone. Mercedes runs her own bakery where she makes bread and then sells it to different stores and businesses, all of whom are stable clients. As she would like to improve her service, Mercedes is requesting a loan to purchase flour, butter, yeast and baking tins in bulk so as to increase her production.
