Janet’s married and has no children yet. Because the income generated by her husband is insufficient to cover all their household expenses, and because she wanted to keep herself busy, Jane decided to find a way to contribute economically to her home to provide a better quality of life for herself and her husband, whom she loves most.

She got her working capital from her husband to open a food-selling business, selling snacks on a retail basis and also, at times, through door-to-door sales. Getting ahead with the business has been very difficult because of the little capital she has compared to the growing demand from the customers, which is why she’s looking for a loan to buy ingredients like wheat flour, baking powder and cooking oil.

In this way, she will be able to gradually stock her store so that her customers can get good service there. Her greatest dream is to succeed with the store so that, thanks to it, she can continue offering her home a better quality of life and better opportunities for economic progress.
