A loan of $325 helped to buy a deep-fat fryer to expand her business.


Blanca Rocio's story

52-year-old Blanca is a hard-working woman. Her husband died several years ago, leaving her alone and responsible for their four children. However, this was never an obstacle to her setting up her own business. Thanks to her cooking experience, some years ago she set herself up in premises where she sold meals, fried food, soda, juices, etc. However, for convenience reasons as well as to lower her costs, she handed the premises back and continued her micro-business from her home where she sells the same products. Blanca currently needs a loan to buy a deep-fat fryer so that she can grow her business and thereby increase her sales and income. This will enable her to improve her quality of life and make some savings with the goal of owning her own premises in the future where she can sell all types of food from different parts of the world.
