Vanessa Carolina
31-year-old Vanessa lives with her two children and her mother, and they work together in order to support their household. She's a single mother who works very hard to get her children ahead and provide them with all the best and everything they need. Vanessa owns a store where she sells perishable goods and basic household staples. Her store is located in her home. She requests a loan that allows her to afford stocking up her business, since she doesn't have enough money to do that. This business is very important for her and her children, because it allows her to pay for her family's expenses. She wishes to stock up her store with merchandise such as detergent, canned food, bread, snacks, beverages and clothing for children and adults, since sales increase during this month of December. She also wishes to purchase other products that are basic staples in a household and are the most sought-after in a store. Vanessa hopes to improve her profits and therefore have more stability in her life.
