Nevertheless she does not have the sum needed to buy the merchandise and because of this she is requesting a loan today to invest in soft drinks, sweets, snacks, liqueurs and the supplies to prepare fast food. With this merchandise, her business will benefit and her quality of life will markedly improve.
