Mercy Oliva's story

Mercy is 57 years old, divorced, and does not have children. She started her grocery business 15 years ago. She decided to start her grocery store in order to meet the needs of her neighborhood, because there was no grocery store near her house. Currently, Mercy works alone from Monday to Sunday, from 8 in the morning until 9 at night. With this loan, Mercy will buy oil, sugar, drinks, meat, etc. Her goal for the future is to own a "mini market" so that she can increase her customers.
