Blanca Rosa's story

Blanca is a married woman who has her feet on the ground, she knows what she wants, where she's going and how to get there. She works in a restaurant, she does the cooking and serves the customers. She and her husband have a teenage son who has made their family complete. She works every day serving typical dishes from Antioquia such as beans, fish stew, sancocho soup, tripe and others.

It was thanks to her brother that the restaurant was set up. He taught her to cook and how to run a restaurant and up until now, although she began with little, it is working well. Blanca is asking for financial support in order to buy fixed assets to improve her business. Her idea is to redesign it progressively until she has a business that her customers appreciate. Her loan will be used for the purchase of 2 tables, 8 chairs, 1 stove with 5 rings and raw materials.
