A loan of $1,500 helped to purchase a refrigerator and supplies for her business.


Ema's story

Ema is 27. She is not married but does have three children aged 10, 4 and 2. Her two older children already attend school. Ema makes and sells food in one of the most visited markets in her community. This will be her first loan with our institution and she will use it to purchase a refrigerator and supplies for her business. She is asking for the loan because she can't afford to purchase what she needs. She faces several challenges in her business, such as competition, and she 'd like to differentiate through offering a good customer service, thus increasing her sales and obtaining a greater income. She is happy and grateful for the opportunity given.
