Blanca Rosa
Blanca lives in a house of her own with her husband and her three sons. She is a very responsible woman whose first priority is to help her family pull through. She sells tortillas, which she makes for lunchtime and for dinner. Her shop is located at her home. Blanca wishes to improve her business, since it generates a very stable income, which enables her to support her family. Thus, she asks for a loan to buy sweetcorn wholesale and lime in order to make more tortillas, particularly on week-ends, which is when she has the most customers, since many other similar establishments are closed. Blanca's goal is to increase her income so as to improve her financial stability.
