Sandra Patricia's story

Sandra manages a grocery store. She lives with her father and four siblings aged 24, 20, 18 and 14. Sandra’s business consists in selling basic staples like rice, beans and sugar. She has three years’ experience having learned from her father who helps her tend to the business; she works full-time.

She’s asking for a loan to buy foodstuffs like rice, beans, sugar, fruit, vegetables and oil, among others that are necessary for her to be able to expand the business and improve sales. She wants to have a more strengthened business and hopes to be able to reach her objectives by means of the loans.
She’s a high-school graduate and hopes to continue with her university studies.
