Joana's story

Joana is 33 years old, married, and has three children. She is a modest and enterprising woman who possesses a strong desire to get ahead. She lives with her small family in Dili, the capital city of East TImor, where she has a business selling an East Timor traditional fried bread with a variety of colors and tastes. It is a very well-known bread because of its unique taste, and lots of people love it.

Joana requested a loan for $1,000, which she will use to buy more flour, oil, food colors, and other ingredients in order to make more fried bread to sell and generate income for her family.
