Daniela Auxiliadora's story

Daniela is 26 years old, a native of Granada, married, the mother of a 7-year-old child and is a merchant by trade. She works preparing and selling soups. She started working when she was 19 years old for her father as he had a shoe shop business and she helped him manage the business. Her father had customers who told her to sell them food and in this way she was saving money to start her own business of selling food. Therefore with her own effort and arduous daily work she was investing in her business to make it sustainable. This has been her first business where she receives the support of her husband. She sells her product in a place located in her home, a place that has a lot of access for the selling of her products. She has regular customers. She has other income like the salary of her husband who works in a company. Her expectations are to grow her business and increase her sales.

She requested the loan to buy supplies like rice, firewood, meat, soda, juice, napkins, onions, etc., all of the raw materials to prepare her delicious soups in order to offer a meal of very good quality to her customers. She feels satisfied in the business as it is going well for her and she maintains stable sales. Her plans for the future are to expand her business premises. Her goals are to get ahead and increase her production of food. She is considered a person with a desire for improvement and is responsible, honest and hardworking.
