A loan helped to buy groceries and cooking utensils.


Johanna Paola's story

The residents of the 24 de Mayo Parish are humble people, who farm short-cycle crops (such as onions, beans, tomatoes), raise poultry, pigs, and do general trade.
Johanna is 35, lives with her common-inlaw partner, and has a 7-year-old son who goes to school. Her partner is a bricklayer. They live in their own home.

To move forward and contribute with household expenses, Johanna prepares meals and snacks for all kinds of parties and social commitments. She usually has events every weekend. She also works from Monday to Friday with older adults in a geriatric center preparing daily meals in the morning.

Johanna will use this new loan to buy groceries to continue preparing dishes such as meats, chicken, sausages, noodles, rice, dressings, and kitchen utensils for the events that she caters to. Her dream is to have an event center and for her family to continue in great health.
