Blanca Johana's story

Blanca Johana is a 27 year old young mother who lives in the Las Praderas area of Chontales. For many years she has supported her husband, being in charge of the farm, and together raising four children, three of whom are in school. Blanca has a vision to convert her small family business into a well-stocked store with a variety of products, as the demand for her products has increased over the past few months and she can't quite compete with other small convenience stores. Therefore Blanca seeks her first loan to buy bread, eggs, rice, laundry soap, bath soap, candy, cookies, toothpaste, coffee and other products to increase her variety and inventory, thus increasing business and obtaining greater income.
