Orquidia Isabel
Orquidia opened her store a few years ago after she had her children, and decided to start a business to be able to help with the household expenses. Her business hours are from 7am to 10pm, 7 days a week, closing in the afternoon for a bit to be able to buy her products. One of the challenges she faces is the location of her business, because the area is a little dangerous. Her husband works as a driver for a company and her children are all adults and are married. With the loan she is requesting, she will buy stuffed animals, perfumes and paper products, etc. This will allow her to improve her sales and be able to make her payments on time, with the hopes that she will maintain a good relationship with the community bank and be able to take out another loan in the future.

Orquidia empezó su bazar hace varios años a raíz de que tuvo a sus hijos y decidió poner algún negocio que le ayude con los gastos de su casa. El negocio lo abre todos los días desde las 7 de la mañana hasta las 22 de la tarde haciendo un receso en la tarde para ir a comprar sus productos. Una de sus dificultades es la ubicación donde se encuentra su negocio ya que el sector es un poco peligroso. Su esposo trabaja como chofer en una empresa y sus hijos son todos mayores de edad y están casados. Con el crédito que está solicitando comprara, peluches, perfumes, papelería, etc., mejorando así sus ventas para cancelar puntualmente las cuotas esperando tener una buena relación con el banco y a futuro poder realizar otro préstamo.
