Leidy Johana's story
Leidy is a young woman, 28 years of age, who is very motivated and excited at the opportunity presented to her by life. Thanks to her microcredit organization, she can ask for a loan to begin her own fast food business, a dream that has eluded her since she was not granted credit in her first attempt to obtain a loan, With the loan she has requested, she will buy a food cart, the utensils and materials she needs to keep safe the sauces, food, and packaging for her business. She will buy the basic food products she needs, such as bread, meat and vegetables to make hotdogs, hamburgers, French fries, and cheese arepas (corn cakes), among other things. This loan will be of greatest importance to Leidy since it represents the beginning of an independent life.
