A loan of $1,175 helped to buy building materials for her bathroom and to use the remainder as working capital.


Clementina's story

Clementina has lived in San José, near the town of El Torno, for 15 years. She has been selling food and drinks for more than 7 years. Her husband is called Gonzalo and he works as a security guard in an institution in the city of Santa Cruz.

Clementina is very grateful for her loan which she needs to finish building a bathroom in her home. She will use the remainder as working capital as she will buy another second-hand burger cart. Clementina is in her third loan cycle with the institution. She is a good client and feels grateful to the institution for the support that they have given her.
