Grimaldina's story

Grimaldina, 37 years old, lives with her 3 children, Ruth, Joselin, and Grecy Fiorela, all of whom are currently students thanks to the support she gives them. Together they live in a house made of high-quality materials that is still not finished. For 10 years, she has run her own business, which is transporting various kinds of merchandise, taking charge of receiving the orders and then contracting with drivers for the transportation. In all this time, she has succeeded in gaining experience. One instance of this was when her vehicle broke down in the middle of the road. Having faced that, she performs technical maintenance on her vehicle at regular intervals. Among the plans she has in mind is expanding her house and putting in a hairdressing shop. Now she will only ask for a loan, which will be her second, to reach the amount she needs and expand her house as well as perform the finish work.
