The loan Córdula is seeking is to buy ingredients for making burgers and fries and also to purchase a bigger industrial kitchen for making fast food. She needs to make the investment because she is seeing a lot of demand in the market, and even more at the market fairs she sells at three days a week. The investment will help her generate more income so she'll be able to improve her family's quality of life.

Córdula's dream is to have a larger and fancier locale where she can sell her burgers and fries and use the income to help her grandchildren, whom she loves and cares for so much.
