A loan of $850 helped to purchase a refrigerator, supplies, and a few utensils for preparing lunches.


Doris's story

For Doris, one of the advantages of working from home is that she does not have to neglect her children. She started her business some time ago so that she could contribute to the household expenses. This enterprising woman prepares lunches for people who work in the area.


In the future, Doris hopes to have her own space that is separate from her house so that she can have a true restaurant. She currently needs a loan to buy a refrigerator, supplies, and a few utensils that will be put to great use as she prepares food.
