Sandra's story

Sra. Sandra and her husband have a hardware store where she works as a salesperson. On occasion, she acts as the manager. It is a family business and she remains active at her work on behalf of her children.

Sandra and her husband want to take advantage of a business opportunity that has been offered to them, which is to open a paint shop next to the hardware store. She says that it will be a very profitable business because she has been in the area for a long time and her family is known for providing good service and quality products.

Sandra is well-prepared and has already laid out the foundation that is needed to start this new venture in which she has placed a great deal of faith. She is requesting a loan in order to buy shelving, do some remodeling and improvements to the shop, and to purchase a stock of paints of different brands. This new business will favorably impact her finances and increase her sales.
