A loan helped a member to refinance debt and invest capital in buying supplies for making food items.


Mujeres Emprendedoras Group's story

The group Enterprising Women is a committee where all of the members work together and strive to be able to overcome and have a better quality of life.

One of these members is Alberta, who works in sales. She sells food items that she makes herself every day starting very early. She mentions that in the face of the crisis that the world is going through due to the Covid-19 pandemic, she is prevented from working normally and generating the means to be able to help her family, and has had consequences on her business.

She hopes to invest capital in her business to be able to build it up again, and with that be able to continue helping her family as she has been.

She is asking for this loan to be able to refinance her debt and invest more capital in her business to be able to buy ingredients to be able to make her food items.
