Susana Yamileth's loan finished fundraising, but these other borrowers need your support


A loan helped to buy a refrigerator to store charamuscas (frozen drinks) and choco-bananas that she sells and to buy a cooler to go out to make sales.


Susana Yamileth's story

Susana has a high school education. She has a partner and one daughter. Her partner is a locksmith. For a year now she has been making charamuscas (frozen drinks) and choco-bananas to sell and she sells them door-to-door in the area.

She will use this loan to buy a refrigerator to store the charamuscas and choco-bananas that she sells and to buy a cooler to go out and make sales.

She hopes her daughter will become a professional and also to have her own house as she is currently living in a relative's house.
