Zoila Isabel
Zoila Isabel G. M. has been in her business for 20 years. She is requesting a loan renewal so that she can invest in buying pigs for the Christmas period. She needs this investment as there are a lot of people who are preparing Christmas meals such as, for example, pork tamales, legs of pork, etc. She already has orders for meat that a lot of women sell during the Christmas period. She also needs the loan to buy some Christmas decorations that she can sell in her home and thereby make more profits. Her goal right now is to be able to buy more pigs so that she can fatten them and then sell them in the local town market.
