Isela's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to buy equipment for cooking in her restaurant.

Isela's story

Isela is 47 years old. She is married and currently lives with her spouse and children.

With the loan she wants to buy cooking equipment for her restaurant, such as blenders and stoves, among other things. With these purchases she hopes to gain more customers and improve the living conditions of her family.

This is the first loan she's received from FUDECOSUR. Even though she had not had prior loan with the state banks, FUDECOSUR has provided her this loan with better terms and a much lower interest rate.
