Juana had worked as a street vendor for several years. She sold breakfast and lunch. However, she then decided to sell fresh fish in a mini-market near her house. She also sells fried fish in the afternoon to the public. She works from 9 a.m. until 11 p.m. The loans she has requested have helped her cover the expenses of her business. Juana would like to expand her sales with more and better merchandise.
