For more than eight years, she managed her own business of selling food such as fried chicken with plantains, pork chops, and chicken and beef turnovers. She also sells ice cream, soft drinks, and fried dough. Diana has always enjoyed the retail trade and previously sold clothes for a living, but she saw that the food business was more profitable.
She is requesting a loan of 21,000 HNL so that she can invest in the purchase of supplies for preparing food and other products. This will help maintain the inventory of her business and result in more earnings. Her goal is to continue working so that her business can grow. On a personal level, she hopes to develop as a businesswoman and have a better standard of living.
