A loan of $700 helped to purchase supplies (flour, cheese, lard, bologna and other items).

Fatima Lorena's story

Ms. Fátima is 29 years old, single and has two children aged 7 and 10 years. She has a snack bar where she sells a variety of snacks and sandwiches in the El Palmar area. This loan is her second cycle with the institution. Ms. Fátima will use this loan to purchase supplies (flour, cheese, lard, bologna and other items) for her business. For this reason she is seeking this loan, since her objective is to make her business grow and generate more income.

Fátima faces challenges in her business such as a lack of electric appliances (a juicer for making juices among others) since she will go about acquiring the benefits of the loan little by little. Her desire is to purchase a plot of land and, a little at a time, have her house built, and thus provide greater comfort to her children.
