Blanca Nelly's story

Blanca has always been described as having charisma. She is someone who, with great effort, has overcome great obstacles in her life. Blanca has 6 children and is a single mother, due to the fact that her husband passed away a while ago, leaving her to care for their children. As a result, she needed a way to make income which would allow her to care for her children and at the same time run a business. It was for these reasons that she opened a store where she offers different types of liquors, snacks and treats to her customers. From this business she is able to generate the necessary income to sustain her family. Thanks to the good service she offers through her business, she has built a good customer base, which allows her to have high number of sales. With the motivation to increase the variety of products she has to offer to her customers, Blanca is seeking a loan that will provide her with the possibility to purchase liquor, snacks and treats to offer to her customers a better variety of products. Blanca hopes that in this way her business will continue to grow, and that her income will increase so that she will be able to offer her children a better quality of life. Blanca's dream is to have a big business that generates a large income for her household, allowing her to improve the quality of life for her 6 children. Up to this point she has had many difficulties in her life.
