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

A loan helped to start a frozen food/ sweets/ drink business.

Luisa's story

Seeing neighbors travelling far to buy frozen foods gave Luisa the idea of starting her business. With five youngsters to support, she needs the extra income. Luisa will use her loan to buy initial stock of fish offcuts, sausage, chicken, beef liver/giblets and even some sweet drinks such as ice-blocks, fruit juice and ice-cream and begin supplying her neighbors with frozen products on their doorstep. She is sure that with established local demand for her products, she can fulfill her dream of running a successful enterprise.
