Angelita Porfiria's story

Angelita is 61 years old, married, and has a ten year-old son. She bought a display case and shelves from which she sells laminated sheets, notebooks, stationery, and a few grocery items. She tends to her her small business by herself. She starts work at 8:00 am and goes until 10:00 pm. She says that at first, her area had a lot of crime and her business was not very productive, but little by little these conditions have been improving and now her business is going very well. Her dream is to expand her business so that she can satisfy the needs of the customers who buy from her each day. Angelita also says that she would like to fix up her house and that her dream is to buy a car. With this loan, she would like to buy stationery items, paper, laminated sheets, etc.
