Señora Olivia is an old client. She has been with our institution since 2004. Her main job is selling ice-cream out in the streets. She rents. All previous loans have helped her business in a big way. Señora Olivia doesn't have any other loans with other financial institutions since she has been an exclusive client of Emprender. With this loan, she's hoping on investing the money in an ice-cream maker. She has a daughter who's currently going to college and she helps her with the business.
