She started to work in order to have an occupation. She felt that she was a productive person and an independent and successful entrepreneur. Now she is seeing the good results of her work. She would like to expand her location in order to accommodate more people. She is requesting a loan of 1000 soles. She is thankful and content to know that she can continue to count on the financial assistance she needs in order to grow her business. With the money from this loan, she will buy the tables and chairs that she needs for the comfort of her customers.
