A loan of $625 helped to build a new kitchen.


Angelina's story

Angelina, 52, has two children that she works hard for with her husband. She makes arepas [traditional corn griddle cake] to sell, an activity she currently does at home since her husband lost his job and they needed a source of income to cover household expenses.

Angelina has noticed how her sales have increased so she needs to remodel her kitchen so that she can fill the orders she gets. Besides, it’s currently situated in a position where contaminants could affect her products.

Angelina dreams with her business’ growth to such an extent that she can open a sales point and not have to produce at home and that her income improves so that she can provide her children with the education they need.
