A loan helped to purchase a baking stove, ice machine and refrigerator.

Samar's story

For reasons of modesty, Samar’s husband was photographed. Samar is from the Negev region. She is a 43 year old mother of 10, who decided she could improve her family’s income. Last year she opened a kiosk restaurant near a local elementary school. She sells sandwiches, drinks and sweets. Customers include the students, parents and teachers. The quality of her sandwiches is well known and her customers have asked her to include additional products. In order to meet these customer demands, Samar is expanding her business. Samar needed this loan to purchase a baking stove, ice machine and refrigerator. Samar is proud of her initial success and looks forward to growing her mini-restaurant. She is already including baked goods and gaining new customers. This loan will help her lower costs and grow her business.
