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

Diana Milena's story
Diana is married and has a little six year old child. Through catalog sales she looks to generate the resources that are so needed in order to be able to get ahead. She started years ago selling deep fried snacks. She sometimes engages in this business activity at the same time that she sells by catalog. She is requesting a loan to buy inventory (body creams, perfumes, and cosmetics, among others) for the end of the year season. She will be taking advantage of the promotional packages that are being offered. She also wants to buy raw materials like potatoes, bananas, and others to sell the fried snacks in the Barbacao neighborhood, where she is widely known. Her big dream is to have her own house, for which she and her husband are working arduously. She also dreams of giving her little one an education. Later, she wants to have a big business, which will generate the income that she needs and give employment to people who need it.
