A loan of $1,000 helped to purchase construction materials to repair the bathroom in her home.


Blanca's story

Blanca has been selling prepared breakfast and lunch foods in the Los Pozos market for more than 10 years. She is a very well known person in the food sector and she has good references. Blanca has 3 grown children and only her 16-year old daughter is still dependent. They have lived in the region of La Pampa de la Isla for more than three years. Her husband has been a taxi driver for more than 2 years. Blanca leases a stand in Los Pozos from where she sells her foods. She also rents another area where she keeps all her chairs, tables, ovens, and carafes. But some months when her sales are high she uses both spaces. She has four people working for her, a master chef, two assistant cooks, and a waitress who attends approximately 20 tables. Her food sales are significant and her business is established and she has many clients. The Los Pozos market is a center of massive consumption with a good influx of cash. The funds for this loan will be used to purchase construction materials to repair a bathroom in her house. She is a very hardworking person and she is thankful with the institution for the support given her.
