Valentina's story

Valentina is 53 years old and works selling everyday products. It wasn't too long ago that she started her business, which she opens from Monday through Sunday, and early on Saturdays. She makes and sells doughnuts, which she sells in grocery stores and to her neighbors. Her daughters help her with the business since twice a week she goes to the market to buy groceries and basic grains.

Valentina is very nice and you can tell that she likes what she does very much. She is hardworking and tries to make sure she has a high-quality product.

She will use the loan to buy groceries and basic grains.

Thanks to her business and her husband's support, Valentina has been able to educate her children and make improvements to her home.
