A loan of $300 helped to buy tables and chairs.


Heidi Natali's story

Heidi Natali, 25, is single and lives in Jucuapa, Usulután department with her grandmother. She sells prepared meals. Her grandmother started the business 16 years ago and through much effort managed to secure a space in Jucuapa’s market where she sells food (beans, eggs, meat, vegetables; she also prepares lunches and breakfasts); she trained Heidi who currently is in charge of the business because her grandmother’s advanced age precludes her from continuing.

Heidi needs funding to buy tables and chairs so that her customers can consume the meals she prepares for them and she can offer better customer service. This will contribute to higher earnings so that the business can continue to produce enough to cover basic needs like food and health for her grandmother.

She aspires to having a larger business with tables and chairs, a camera to show her various dishes to customers, better quality of life for her family and to continue in the enterprising spirit.
