A loan of $425 helped purchase of seafood.

Pastora's story

Mrs. Pastora V. is 42 years old. She is a hard-working woman who, thanks to a microcredit loan, has been selling mixed drinks, soft drinks, and beans for many years. She lives in the neighborhood La Primavera, and has 2 children (11 and 19). Both are in school.

Mrs. V. plans to invest this loan from Afodenic in the purchase of fish, shrimp, etc. in order to offer a wider variety of foods and increase her profits since they are popular foods from which one can prepare many delicious dishes. Her plans are to put her business on sure footing so that she can help her children turn out to be upstanding people.
