Olga Regina's story

Olga is the single mother of her 19 year old son. She has gotten him ahead with a lot of effort and dedication. She has been tending to her own business for over 13 years. Her business is a deli where she offers snacks, soft drinks, beer, and liquor. She works every day from 12:00 p.m. until 12:00 a.m. She has help from an employee on the week-ends. Those are the days when sales increase. This way she generates sufficient resources to give her son a good education and daily support.

In order to strengthen her inventory, she is requesting the loan to buy stock wholesale (beer, liquor, soft drinks, and snacks, among others). This will allow her to satisfy the current demand and improve sales.

Olga’s mid-range objective is to get her own space in which she would be able to establish her business. This way the business would be more profitable. She would be saving the rent money that she currently pays in order to give her son a better quality of life and improve his well-being.
