Hadar is a 33-year-old mother of two now living in southern Israel. Hadar decided to open a pizzeria after doing a field study, talking to residents from the surrounding neighborhoods, and understanding what her skills and strengths are. She has done well, partnered with a delivery company, and is creating a quality product.

Hadar needed this loan to purchase an additional restaurant-size pizza oven so she can meet additional customer demands.

Hadar wants to develop her own brand with signature pizzas and dough and one day open a small chain of restaurants. This is her beginning, but she has plans which have been well thought out.
