Maritza Lorena's story

Lorena is 35 years old. She lives with her husband and three children in her own home. Lorena owns a store where she sells household staples such as beans, milk, eggs and bread, among other things. She has had her business for three years, and says that she has gained a lot of sales experience, which helps her to maximize her profits. Lorena’s store is located in her home, which is in a busy area. She says that she is well-known in the neighborhood, and that she has a lot of customers because she keeps her store well-stocked.

Lorena wants to further invest in her business in order to expand, but she needs capital to do it. She is requesting this loan to buy what she needs for her store. Lorena promises to pay off the loan, and she is confident that the loan will help her to give her family a better quality of life.
