While he is out doing construction work she works in the grocery store where she can look after the house, the children and does the inventory of products which are finishing and  those most in demand by her customers who visit her on a daily basis. Previously she used to only sell cooked beans and tortillas but with time she has added more products for sale. She has had this grocery shop business for one  year now and it has allowed her to generate her own income. She is asking for a loan to buy basic grains, bread, eggs, tinned products, snacks, soft drinks and juices as these are the products most in demand by her customers. Her project is to expand her business, supply it with new and varied merchandise and to provide her family with a better quality of life.
