Ines Belarmina's story

Ines Belarmina, age 61, is married and has three children who are adult and independent. Her husband is a street vendor, selling various products. They live in their own house. They live in Picoazá known for its business and religious festivals, and for growing vegetables, legumes, and tropical fruits.

In her home, Ines Belarmina has a small shop making artisanal sweets, which she sells to merchants in various sectors who come to her house to buy. She makes cocadas, ajonjolí acaramelado, huevos moyos, galletas de almidón, troliches, etc. She sells every day.

The health crisis at first was very bad for her because she could not sell, but now little by little she is reactivating to be able to continue earning income.

With this new loan, she will buy coconuts, milk, essences, cooking utensils, etc. Her dream is that her family will have good health and that her business will continue growing.
