Ofelia Del Carmen's story

Ofelia del Carmen C. lives in Santa Tecla, department of La Libertad. Ofelia is a single mother, lives with her son and her mother who provides some support to this woman who finds herself bearing the financial responsibilities alone. Ofelia and her mother are a great team, in spite of the adversities and the competition in the area, they have been able to maintain their store for many years. With the desire to excel and get ahead they are now not only taking care of the store, but Ofelia had an idea of also opening a diner several blocks from where they live, since it is a high traffic area. This mother/daughter team has maintained their store and now have a diner with a large client base. Ofelia is now requesting a loan to purchase merchandise for her store and diner since the number of customers is increasing and she needs to increase the supply of products for her kitchen.
