Frine is a member of the Empecemos (“Let’s get started”) Village Bank. Frine is 24 years old and lives with her partner and their two children. Frine sells vegetables on the street outside of her house seven days a week. Frine used to travel to different markets to buy cheeses, but she stopped after giving birth to her son, since she had to dedicate more of her time to caring for him. Frine is requesting a loan to buy rice and sugar in order to offer her customers a wider variety of products. Frine’s dreams are to own a large store and to save more money.
