Maria Rosario N. is a merchant who sells sweets. She is well known in her community for her work. The sweets she sells are tasty, so she has a lot of customers. In addition to the income she earns from her business, her husband sends money every month from the United States, so her living conditions are good. However, she is still eager to work. She will use this loan to purchase materials to make her sweets.

Deysi Judith O. C. is a merchant who makes and sells bread and pastries. Deysi has been perfecting her bread and pastry making technique for a long time to create a good tasting product.
