Hilaria is 65 years old widow with seven children who are independent. She has a grocery store where sells general merchandise. In addition she has an investment in a taxi that belonged to her husband. She still manages this business. Hilaria is a responsible worker. That is why her customer base has grown and with it their needs. She is asking for a loan for working capital. With this loan she will buy basic grocery items such as rice, oil, sugar, beans, salt, bread, eggs and cheese as well as other items. Her dreams and goals are to continue working as long as her health permits, save for the future and have resources for the future and to not be dependent on anyone.
