Dora Alicia's story

Dora, 61, is determined to get ahead over the next few years in her business selling liquids such as detergents, and also working as a babysitter for extra income. Her story began when she decided to set up a sales point in her home, because of her advanced age. She works alone every afternoon and does not have difficulties. She is not married but has children. Her main goal is to stabilize her business, so she wants to use the loan to improve her home since it is where she stores the liquids she sells.
