Roxana Raquel's story

Roxana has a shop selling basic, staple goods. She is a hard-working person who, with a lot of effort and sacrifice, has managed to prosper. Roxana lives with her parents and two siblings. She does not have any family abroad. Roxana learned her trade from her parents and has now had the store for ten years. She works from 7am until 5pm. One of the strengths of the business is that it is very accessible for customers and there is little competition. This loan will allow Roxana to buy sugar, beans, rice, oil, salt, toilet paper, soap for washing clothes and dishes, and other merchandise in order to stock up her business. This investment will help to increase Roxana's income and give her more opportunities to expand the business and thus improve her living conditions. Roxana's dream is to work a lot in order to strengthen and expand the business.
