A loan helped to purchase sugar, rice, beans, vegetables, chicken and beef, and other supplies she needs to make the foods she sells.


Elsa Isabel's story

Elsa decided to ask for another loan because she needs to strengthen the inventory of the business where she sells food and soft drinks. She will be investing the borrowed funds in the purchase of sugar, rice, beans, vegetables, chicken and beef, and other supplies she needs to make the foods she sells.

The effects of the previous investment were positive because it was of great help to her to purchase the necessary supplies to continue working making food and soft drinks, so she was able to meet the her customers' demand. So, she was able to get the necessary income to pay for the household necessities. Her family remains the same without having any health problems and, with the earnings she gets from the business, she is self-sufficient.
