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

A loan helped to buy 2 pots, 12 plates, 1 bag of rice, kilos of meat, and 1 bag of coal.

Vero's story

At 42 years old, Vero is married. Her husband works as a chauffeur and tour guide. Together they have three children, one of which is school-age.

Vero began running a food stand in 2012. Her unit is located close to her house. In order to assure a regular production, it is necessary to stock up on not only the necessary equipment but also on ingredients.

With this loan, Vero plans to purchase 2 pots, 1 bag of rice, kilos of meat, a variety of vegetables, and plates. Vero's goal is to build her own house and no longer have to pay rent.
