Guillermina's story

Señora Guillermina is from San Roque González. She is a widow with 3 grown children, all students and hard-workers. She tells us that she used to work as a street vendor; That is to say, she walked to many places offering appliances on credit in the cities of Roque González and Guarambaré. She comments that she has an established clientele and her products are well received. Guillermina is very sacrificing. Her workday begins before sunrise and she has played the role of mom and dad at the same time, even so she has an enterprising spirit. Thanks to this her children have received a formal education and no longer depend on her economically.

She needs to enlarge her income to improve her quality of life and, according to her, the only way to manage this is through the loans, because with them she buys a greater quantity of merchandise with important discounts.
