A loan helped to purchase oil, plantains, a chopping block, and a frying pan.


Francis Elena's story

Francis is a merchant who day to day struggles to continue growing. She sells tajaditas [fried plantains] in her home. She has the support of her two children who motivate her to fulfill her dreams.

Francis has opted for financing from these two organizations to purchase oil, plantains, a chopping block, and a frying pan.

Her short-term goal is to continue growing and to have an eatery.
