Andrea Patricia's story

Andrea is 36, married, and the mother of three children. Every morning, after having a cup of coffee to invigorate herself, she cleans and organizes her grocery store. Andrea sells a wide variety of quality products and has been steadily gaining more customers. Andrea opened the store four years ago so that she could contribute to the finances of her family, which has experienced good times, but also challenging ones. Andrea is a resourceful woman who has, with the support of her husband, managed to improve her family's situation. Andrea has started a second business selling cheese in her neighborhood to earn more income.

Andrea is applying for a loan to make her capital more productive. She needs to purchase staple grains, dairy products, spices, soft drinks, as well as a wheelbarrow and coolers for selling cheese. Andrea is confident that a loan will benefit her businesses, and aspires to provide for her family family's health and her children's primary school education. She wants the children to have a prosperous future. One of Andrea's goals is to improve conditions in her home; another is to expand her business, which offers her customers essential goods to meet their needs.
