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

A loan helped to buy a grill cart and stove/oven.

Felafia's story

Felafia is a hard-working, enterprising woman whose main goal is to provide for her small children. Her business is selling Kjaras (a typical food from the Valluna region of Bolivia, actually from the province of Vallegrande and made of corn, potatoes, pork chops and rind). She sells her products only on Friday from 7:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m., since it is a fairly self-sacrificing job.

This is her first loan and she has decided to apply for it through the Fundación Sartawi to be able to buy a grill cart (to prepare her products) and a stove and oven. This loan will help her increase Kjara production so she can sell more volume. Demand for the product is quite high in the area.

Felafia is exited about receiving everyone’s help so she can buy the grill cart and stove. This will give her economic stability so she can provide for her lovely family.
