Gricelda De La Cruz's story

Gricelda has been a merchant for three years, selling homemade drinks. She is married, and her husband is an auto repair mechanic. She has three children, and her main goal is for her children to be professionals. She and her husband work hard to offer their family the best that they can offer. She has encountered difficulties in her business, such as high prices and the low sales that they produce. She started off selling ice cream, and she now sells drinks to help with the household costs. This year, she wants to achieve an increase in her income with a greater variety of drinks, and also start selling desserts. Her home is humble and needs improvements. She will use the loan for the purchase of construction materials such as: cement, sand, stone, iron, steel nails, blocks and timber for the construction of some walls. This loan will promote the improvement of her life as she will obtain security and protection.
