Emperatriz's story

Emperatriz M. C. is single and doesn't have any dependents as her children are already grown up. She lives in the village of Caimito. She has her own home and a business selling clothes and footwear in the 'Mercado Nuevo' (New Market) in San Lorenzo. She travels there every day to open her business where she sells clothes, footwear, caps, belts, sunglasses and a lot more besides.

Emperatriz will use her loan to buy fashionable clothes. She has several orders and would like to have her business well stocked. Her dream is for her business to grow a lot and to make good profits.
