Emilia started her business two years ago selling soft drinks and different types of fried potatoes, including French fries. In addition, she designed bridal gowns and special gowns for girls’ fifteenth birthday. (In some Latin American countries, a girl’s fifteenth birthday is a special occasion and is celebrated differently and more elaborately – similar(ish) to the “sweet sixteen” celebrations).

She invested the profits from these two sources of income into buying a shop and converting it into a mini-supermarket. Consequently, she has achieved what she had always wanted and today she owns a small supermarket called “Super Mini Emy”.

Emilia requires a loan of $975, repayable over six months, to buy stock and to expand and remodel her store. With your assistance, she will achieve her goal.
