Basilia Santana
Basilia is a 51-year-old assiduous woman who struggles to earn a living. She is single and has four children, two boys and two girls.
For more than four years, Basilia has been selling sandwiches, toasted bread, milk shakes and juices. She runs the business within her house. Early in the morning, she prepares the sandwiches and starts to sell them to people going to school and to work. One of her daughter sometimes helps with the preparation and selling of the food. Currently, she has a lot of customers that she says are satisfied with her service and good character.

Basilia is thinking about enlarging her business with the intention to serve more people. With her loan, she will buy a large quantity of raw materials so as to sell more and increase her income. That way, she will have more opportunity to keep improving her family´s life quality.
