A loan of $550 helped to buy some grills and supplies for her fast food stall.


Mercy's story

Mercy is a thirty-five year old woman and a married mother of two children. Three years ago she decided to become an independent businesswoman, starting a fast food stall located in the center of the city of Medellín, in the department of Antioquia.

Mercy dreams of having a bigger food business where she can offer more variety of products to her customers which will make her business more memorable and desirable to her clientele. At the same time she'd be able to offer employment to more people who need it and in this way succeed in creating a chain of sustainable employment.

Right now she needs some grills and supplies for her business. With these she'll be able to start innovating the products she offers, increase sales, and improve her quality of life and that of her family.
