A loan helped to stock pastries, sodas and other products for her business.


Arlet Margarita's story

Arlet, 38, is a woman who, because of the latent economic needs of her household, decided to start her own business selling food and beverages.

She has two beautiful daughters, ages 12 and 10, and her goal is to give her princesses an education, an excellent quality of life, food on the table and a roof over their heads.

Arlet is applying for a loan to stock her business with pastries, sodas and other products.

She lives in a post conflict area so the loan is at higher risk.
