Sandra's story

39-year-old Sandra is a determined, strong woman. She is married with 2 children, who have succeeded in life thanks to her dedication and hard work. She has been working independently for 15 years, since she wanted to take advantage of some available space in her home. She began renting two rooms. Initially, her customers were carriers who came to load or unload merchandise in the market square area, and then she began providing other services, such as garment repair and food, generating income to support her husband and lessen the financial burden of the household. She later on, managed to fix other rooms to increase her capacity.
She will invest this loan in room repairs (fixing the kitchen, bathrooms and bedroom doors). This will let her have a more comfortable and enjoyable space for her customers, which will allow her to increase her revenue.
Sandra said that her greatest desire is to acquire a store or larger space to expand her steady capacity and have more rooms to provide hosting services and have the ability to stabilize her family finances and improve the quality of life of her whole family.
