Blanca Lidia's story

Doña Blanca is 48 years old, lives in her own house with her two children, and has a shop where she sells staple goods like beans, milk, eggs, and bread, among others. She has spent many years with her business and this has given her sales experience that allows her to get better profits. It is located in her home, in a very busy town. Her business is well-known by the neighbors in the area and she has many customers since she has the store well-stocked.

She wants to increase the business and make a new investment but she needs the capital. This is why she asks for a loan that allows her to buy what she needs for the store. She is certain that she can pay off the debt and at the same time believes that she will give her family a better quality of life.
