Florencia's story

Florencia sells basic necessity products from her house. For 2 years she has had a neighborhood store and it is going very well for her because of the great service she gives her customers and also the variety of products she offers. She supports her family with this activity. Her husband went to Spain to seek better opportunities for the family and he sends remittances every month for support and also to build their little house. Florencia took over the care of her granddaughter since her daughter travelled to Argentina, also in search of better opportunities. At present, she has a son under her care who is in school. She has lives in her own house for 10 years. She is a very responsible and hardworking person who wants to get ahead. She is grateful to the institution for the support it has offered in giving the loan.
