Damaris's story

Damaris will use her loan to open a new restaurant and thereby improve her income. This will enable her to build her own home and help her family since she will give them work in the business. She will also be able to better serve her customers. It was her customers who encouraged her to open the establishment as Damaris only used to open weekend mornings but the new establishment will be open every weekday and weekend afternoons. In addition to selling food, she also sells women's clothing. Damaris is a very hard-working woman and says that her husband supports her in everything. Together they are confident that they will get ahead.
