Gloria Maria
Gloria continues to sell goods in her grocery store, and her goal is to invest in more products as she doesn't have much in stock because it has been a difficult year for her. First, she had a problem with her feet, and later her brother died, and she had to make expenditures.
She can always count on economic support from her husband, who sells dairy goods, and her working children. And now, with this new loan, she wants to buy in greater quantity goods such as staple grains, large quantities of rice, beans, sugar, corn, boxes of soap, oil, candies, Coca Cola products, cereals, and other things that are in demand from her customers.
She hopes to continue balancing her sales and to have better returns.
