Sandra Cecilia's story

Sandra is forty-one years old and lives with her daughter. She is a fighting and responsible woman so that her family never lacks what is necessary for subsistence.

Presently, she works selling food close to where she lives, in an area where there is a lot of business. She has been doing this for several years and has many fixed customers; she offers a good price for a plate of food.

Sandra wishes to grow her stall by buying tables, chairs, and more basic ingredients so that she can vary her menu and have a little more income. However, she does not have a sufficient income to cover this investment. For this reason, she is requesting a loan in order to purchase the said items, and to thereby improve her profits and give her daughter everything she needs.
