Josefa's story

Josefa is active in business. Thanks to her effort, for 17 years she has managed to support her store, which she started with few products and capital from her husband. Over the years she applied for a loan, which introduced more products. Her three children are in the university and the oldest one works. Her husband, a plumber by trade, is now retired. This new loan she's requesting is to buy staple products such as rice, beans, sugar, cans of oil, toilet paper, dairy products, a display case for her products, and various fruits because she also sells natural fruit drinks. With this loan she hopes to increase her inventory to improve her sales and get better earnings to support her children with the expenses for their studies.
