Doña Manuela will invest the loan in materials like paper and wire to make the wreaths. The loans that she has received have helped her build her house and continue helping her maintain her business with a better selection and different flower designs that can attract more customers. she She lives outside the city and pays a lot for transportation and suffers from high blood pressure. Her goal is to improve her house and always have her business better stocked and with different designs of wreaths that can attract more customers.
