Faysuli

Colombia
Medellín, Colombia / Food Production/Sales

A loan of $825 helped to buy a sealant machine and a cooler for the production of the "bolis" (frozen pops) she makes and sells.


Faysuli's story

Enterprising is the best word to describe Faysuli, a young 20-year-old who has always wanted to generate her own income and pay her share of household expenses. From a very early age, Faysuli began to demonstrate that she was a person full of ideas, who wanted to form a company and generate some income for her home. At present, Faysuli is producing and selling 'bolis' (frozen pops), an activity she began on her own and learned, thanks to working in an enterprise that did this. Her work was very poorly remunerated and she decided to start her own business.

At present, Faysuli's business enjoys good sales, thanks to the fact that her products are of very good quality and her service is always the best. Nevertheless, Faysuli faces inconvenience when producing her products because the work is done manually and her equipment is not the best. The result is that she can not fill large orders, nor can she automate the process. For this reason, Faysuli needs to buy a sealant machine that will permit her, after filling the tubes, to seal the frozen 'bolis', and also, a cooler to allow her products to be kept under the required conditions. Unfortunately, currently, Faysuli lacks sufficient capital to purchase this equipment, and for that reason, she is requesting a loan to make it possible to buy a sealant machine and a cooler, so she can produce products of even greater quality.

Faysuli hopes that by improving the quality of her products, sales will grow and thus, she will achieve her dream: to have a large factory someday, generating jobs for people in need.
