Bertha's story

Bertha lives in Bella Vista and has her business in the local market. She has three independent children. For some time now she’s been both father and mother to her children because her husband abandoned them. She raised her children by herself which makes her very proud.

Bertha is quite hard working and responsible. We can also highlight that she has quite a large clientele in the market because she has a lot of retirees and other customers. She cooks around 80-100 meals which always sell out. She does well because she’s quite gracious to everyone and her meals are prepared quite tastily.

On this occasion she’s asking for a loan to buy rice, potatoes and noodles at wholesale. She is grateful to the institution for the support provided.
