Juana C. is the head of her family. She takes care of her children, and learned how to get ahead by herself through selling food. Everything started four months ago when she decided to start a business because her neighbors were asking her for her food. They liked it so much that she adapted a space in her house to make it a small restaurant.

Nevertheless, she doesn't have enough supplies right now to keep making her dishes, besides offering her clients food for the holidays. This is why Juana is requesting a loan of $300, to be repaid in 4 months, to be able to buy merchandise to make her dishes. With your help, Juana will be able to keep her business going and to establish it so she can pass it on to her kids.
