A loan helped to buy rice, coffee, sugar, meats, and other products needed to keep her canteen business going.


Fatima Magaly's story

Fatima is single and has no children. She currently lives with her mother. She has no economic dependents. She is the owner of a canteen, which she opened a year ago, and learned the trade on her own initiative. Fatima works from 6:00 am to 3:00 pm.

She has decided to apply for a loan to expand her business. With the working capital she will buy rice, coffee, sugar, meats, and other products needed to keep to keep her canteen business going. She hopes that the loan will help her to capitalize on her business and to recover financially from the negative effects of the COVID 19 pandemic.

Her goal is to open another sales branch in order to improve her economic conditions so that she can have a more comfortable life.
