Josefa's story

Mrs. Josefa L. is 55 years old, single and lives in the neighborhood of Villa Reconciliacion. She has five children three of them are adults and two are students. Her business is the sale of fried meals and a grocery shop that she has managed for six years, which she started with her savings.

This is her sixth loan with Afodenic. She is asking for a loan to buy basic grains such as beans, rice and dairy products, to increase her inventory and sales. She hopes to be able to make improvements in her house because it is basic and unsafe since part of it is lined with zinc. She wants to give a decent home to her children.
