Isabel's story

Isabel bought Fruteria El Mango Manila three months ago. This is the second location for Isabel; the original location has been in existence for over three years and doing very well. Her business offers smoothies, natural squeezed juices, crepes and the famous traditional fruit salads and sandwiches from Mexico. Isabel was an employee at the first location when she was presented with the opportunity to buy the business. She runs Fruteria El Mango Manila with the help of her extended family, especially her mother and her two school-aged sons. Even though the business is generating enough revenue to pay all of the expenses, Isabel will use her Kiva loan as working capital during the slower months. Eventually, Isabel would like to open a full-service restaurant where she can showcase some of her favorite family recipes.
