She will invest the capital that she is applying for in the purchase of cheese, pork cracklings, flour, corn, oil, dressings, drinks, cabbage, tomatoes and bags. She will have her business stocked to continue working and covering the demand of her customers. She hopes that the results of the investment will be positive and that she will be able to pay off her debt.
