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

A loan helped to add ice-cream, ice-block and other frozen sweets to her canteen.

Elisabeta's story

A busy, successful shop is what motivates Elisabeta (45).

To do this, she has decided to add ice-cream to her inventory and will use her loan to buy cones, ice-cream and other frozen sweets.

She expects to make 26.00 a day selling these frozen snacks.

With the extra income, Elisabeta can contribute to the household budget, and start saving for her children’s future education.
