A loan of $1,000 helped working capital.

Irenea's story

Mrs. Irinea C. is 48 years old, she has been married for more than 12 years, and has 7 children of which 5 are still her dependants. She sells food to the children of the school Colegio Marcelo Quiroga Santa Cruz during their recess (“el recreo”) schedule. Her business has helped with two of her children graduating from high school, becoming independent, continuing with higher education and improving their quality of life.

Mrs. Irinea is requesting the loan to help her increase and improve the business by selling food not only to the school but also to other customers in town; she hopes this will increase her income and like her first 2 children, the remaining 5 can get a higher education.
