Blanca Celina's story

Blanca is seeking a new loan in order to strengthen her business. She wants to continue providing good service to her customers and to do this she should have corn, rice, beans, vegetables, coffee, sugar, bread, soft drinks, and other products that are necessary to meet the demand of her clients in order to provide their preferences.

She said that the previous loan permitted her to increase the inventory too, and this produced increased sales from her customers while maintaining their loyalty. Her strategy is to continue making investments in order not to lose her customers and to be able to continue to generate income for her family.
