Her hours of operation start at 8:00 am and end at 6:00 pm, her advantage being that she has very good customers.

With the help of this loan, her life will change now that she will have the material available to create her products and thus have a better income to help support her family. Her dream is to succeed in her business and that her children become professionals.
