Blanca Irene's story

Blanca Irene is a 62-year-old woman who has had to find ways to educate her children. When she separated from her husband, she became responsible for the household and providing for her family because he did not contribute child support. Searching for an income source, she decided to open a store in her house where she could work every day, and she has thus been able to pay expenses and improve the family's circumstances. She is applying for a loan to buy a refrigerator because some of her products are spoiling for lack of refrigeration. She will use the remaining money to buy beer for her business. Her dream is to increase her income and achieve financial stability.
