She is planning to invest her new loan to purchase goods for her cafeteria, where she sell sandwiches, burgers, juices and other different foods and snacks. She is going to use her earnings to buy furniture for her living room and to save, because her plan in the short-term is to have a house and a bigger cafeteria.
