Aracelly Patricia's story

Aracelly rents her home. She is married and she has three young children. She is a very hard working person who dedicates a great deal of time on her business. She runs the business together with her husband and her childre. She makes and sells prepared foods: family style lunches and in the evenings she serves dinner items. She has a significant client base that buy her products in the region, but she also has contracts with social groups and organizations where she manages the catering. She requests a loan to purchase ingredients in wholesale, such as potatoes, rice, sugar etc. Her profit margin is not very large which is why she requests a loan, to purchase more products.
