She is grateful for the support she has been shown because, little by little, thanks to the financing she has obtained, she has been able grow as a businesswoman. Her first loan allowed her to add more inventory to her store; like basic grains, bread, eggs, canned goods and in this way she was able to offer a greater variety of products to her customers.
