For several years she has been in the grocery business selling goods such as sugar, rice, shortening, vegetables, soft drinks, doughnuts, brad, juices, canned goods, etc. She has taken out ten loans, including this one for 10,000 HNL which she will use to buy food products such as basic grains and vegetables.
