Clemencia Del Rocio's story

Clemencia is 36 years old and is married to Luis. She lives in Libertad where she has a grocery and general store. She has had the store for 8 years which she opened with her own capital. She tells us that she had the courage to do it because in those days there were not many stores in her neighborhood. Currently she is not the only one and the competition is tough. Clemencia tells us that she works from 7:00AM in the morning until 10:00PM in the evening, and her customers favor her store because she closes so late. We note that at the moment a difficulty for her is transport as the neighborhood where she gets her supplies is far away. Her husband, Luis, is a taxicab driver and industrial mechanic. He has 2 jobs which are going very well. Her 3 children are students and attend the school called Fiscal de Libertad. She will use the loan to buy rice, sugar, and sweets hoping to improve her sales. Her future goal is improve the quality of life of her family.
