Herenia's story

Herenia is 28 years old. She is single and is the mother of a two-year-old son. She is a retailer. She began to work with her mother when she was very young. Then at the age of 21 she acquired experience selling clothing as an street vendor. It was there that she decided to become independent with her own business, of which she has been the proprietor for more than 7 years. In addition to this business, she has another business, which is a mobile phone reloading service. She has the help of her sister.

She is applying for the loan to buy more clothing, such as pants, blouses, shorts, skirts, dresses, etc. She thinks that this loan will help her a lot, because this way she will be able to buy the merchandise that sells best. Her future plan is to have a store of her own. Her goal is to make her business grow, buying other products that she still does not have in stock, and in this way obtain better income and more customers.
