A loan of $525 helped to buy an industrial oven.


Monica Marizela's story

Mónica is a long-time client that is in her third loan cycle with our institution. She makes empanadas, cookies, and bread. She is requesting the loan to buy an industrial oven. Mónica has been working as a baker for two years. She lives in the Tacagua neighborhood, in her parent’s house. She sells her products as a street vendor in the covered corridors and also to some stores in the neighborhood. Mónica is a hardworking and dynamic client with a good attitude toward credit. Her goal is to save a good amount of capital and, with time, grow her business and later expand it even more. In this way she will improve her quality of life. Mónica feels very happy and thankful to the institution for the support it has provided.
