Mabel's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!
A loan helped to boost the small café that she runs and to be able to offer a larger diversity of products to sell to her clients.
Mabel, 43 years old, lives together with her life partner who is an artisnal fisherman. With them are 2 adolescent children who stopped attending school because of economic problems. She has worked for many years in business. She is a person who has always liked to commercialize especially seafood. Previously, she had a small eatery in her house. The funds will be used to boost her small café that she runs and to be able to offer larger diversity of products to sell to her clients. The strength of her business is the fast food and natural soft drinks. Mabel's dream in the short term is to have her eatery again because she is passionate about the kitchen, and she sees that in her area a place that offers such a service does not exist.
