Yaduvis's story

Yaduvis is a hardworking person, dedicated to her family, and enterprising. Her greatest desire always has been to become independent, and with effort and discipline, she has achieved that.

For 11 years, she has worked in her business selling food and prepared dishes in the municipality of Carmen de Viboral. Yaduvis hopes to be able to make her business known throughout the community, and to establish it as one of the best.

In order to achieve her dreams, she is requesting a loan that she will invest in the purchase of plastic chairs and tables, and rice and grains in quantity. In this way, she will be able to strengthen her work in the best way, offering a good service. This will permit her to increase her income.

Yaduvis will be able to continue fighting for the well-being of her family, thanks to your support.
