Ana Lucía is mother of four children. For the last five years she’s been selling clothes and shoes. She sells her goods in a locale she rents in the community where she lives. She needs to buy more merchandise because an important commercial season is approaching. She’s requesting a million colones (¢1.000.000). She’s grateful for the support provided by means of this loan.
