A loan of $725 helped to buy items for her new business selling food.


Blanca Aurora's story

63-year old Blanca considers herself an enterprising woman, as for a long time now she has managed to get together enough resources to allow her six children to get ahead. She now runs a business selling food outside her home at weekends. As well she has a sewing business providing services to her neighbours and people who live further away. She started the food business as she didn't earn enough from sewing.

Blanca dreams of a better future where she will have a well-known sewing workshop and an expanding meal business. In order to achieve this, she knows that she has to improve some aspects such as the grill, kitchen tools, and supplies. However, this all costs more than she can afford so she is seeking a loan so that the food she produces will be of higher quality, sales will increase, as will her income.
