Blanca Cecilia's story

Blanca, 30, is married and the mother of two children. She has a store at home where she sells basic staples like milk, sugar, coffee, oil and beans. She’s been in business three years and her advantage is being located in a very densely populated area. She’s asking for a loan to buy merchandise like toilet paper, tooth paste, shampoo, bath soap, detergent and soft-drinks, among others. With this she’ll have what she needs for her sales and to increase inventory to earn higher profits. Her dreams are to vary the range of products, to offer her children better quality of life and to strengthen her business.
