This loan is her first cycle with the institution. Basilia is going to use this loan to buy groceries and wholesale candy and cookies in order to supply her business. Her reason for asking for this loan is that she lacks cash to make these purchases. Basilia is facing challenges in her business and in improving her quality of life. She is going to use the proceeds to increase the variety of products for her store since with the growth of the area it needs a well stocked store and in this way she can generate more income.

Her short-term objective is to improve her economic stability.
