Banco Mujer Mujeres De Negocio Group's story
Zoila, 54, is married and lives with three of her daughters and eight grandchildren. She works serving breakfast and lunch to workers in the area who like her cooking. Her husband helps with delivery and also takes along extra food to sell. After selling everything he returns home with a list of orders. Zoila is requesting the loan to buy sufficient ingredients for the orders she receives. Every time a customer tries her food her clientele increases. This business has helped her for many years to get ahead with her family. In the area where she lives it is very difficult to find employment, so she is happy that her monthly income is increasing and the family economy improving. She chose the Fundación Mujer (Women's Foundation) because of its low interest rate and personalized service. In the future she wants to set up some tables in the patio of her house and turn it into a soda fountain where people can come and try her delicious food.
