A loan of $300 helped purchase meat.

Venancia's story

Venancia Graciela A. Carballo, 31, is a mother of two children aged 12 and 9. She owns a despensa (Spanish for 'pantry') in her house where she sells products such as wine, tomato sauce and pasta. In addition to her despensa, she just began to sell meat a week ago in order to increase her earnings. She purchases the meat from the market and then prepares the meat for its various purposes. She prepares and sells the meat that is used for milanesa, a popular sandwich, and also for other dishes. Thus far, her meat sales have been very successful because she has many clients who purchase the meat from her despensa.

In a way, Venancia is continuing a family business as her mother used to own a despensa and after she closed hers, Venancia decided to open a despensa of her own. It has been just two years since Venancia started her despensa. Before this, she was a housewife and took care of the children.

Venancia is seeking a $300 loan to purchase merchandise from the market in Itá for her new business.
