Enyi Lorena's story

Everyday before opening the doors to her grocery store, Enyi cleans and arranges all of her products with a lot of pleasure and enthusiasm. Her customers are tended to in a neat and welcoming environment, which is why they always come back to do their shopping. She is 40 years old, married and has two children. Five years ago, she started this business with a small amount of money that she invested intelligently. Everyday is a challenge that she hopes to overcome with her husband who is her right hand, and together they strive to give their children health and a quality education. She is seeking this loan to increase the productivity of her business. She needs to purchase basic grains such as rice and beans, as well as oil, condiments, snacks, soda, dairy products and others. She is placing her trust in this loan because she hopes to increase her customer base as well as her business. One of her goals is to open a general store, which will allow her to have a larger market. Another one of her dreams is to open a pharmacy and provide an opportunity to her cousins who are pharmacists but are currently unemployed. She is definitely a charismatic and enterprising woman.
