A loan helped renovate her oven and kitchen equipment.

Andrea's story

Andrea is married and lives in her mother in law's house. She works selling food. She has a speciality: empanadas.
This woman is a mother with a little girl.
Andrea has been working at her business for some 3 years and has arrived at the need to renovate her oven and other kitchen equipment as she is using her mother's. For this reason, she hopes that she can help her. Her husband is currently unemployed so the only income for the household comes from her work.
