A loan of $300 helped to buy plantain, cassava, oil, vinegar.


Asunción De La Concepción's story

Mrs. Asuncion de la Concepcion S. started with small capital , her first loan of C$500.00, and used to offer her products as a traveling vendor. Her business has grown and she is now selling wholesale to universities and schools. This has been possible because of the loans given to her through CEPRODEL.

She utilized the present loan to buy the ingredients and side items necessary to prepare ‘platanitos’ and ‘yuquitas’ like plantains, cassava, oil, vinegar and firewood.
