Azucena's story

Azucena is single. She has one son, but he is grown. Since she separated from her ex husband, she looked for a way to move forward and decided to start a small business. She started out selling lightbulbs and cables, but little by little, she grew her business until it was a full-fledged hardware store. Her only son helps her with the business. Azucena works from Monday to Saturday from 8:00 am until 6:00 pm. Her dream for her business is for it to grow more, so that she can then give work to people who need it. With the loan, Azucena wants to buy cables, wall sockets, lightbulbs, sand, stone, cement, etc.
