A loan of $1,000 helped to purchase a freezer.


Silvia Vanessa's story

Señora Silvia currently lives in the neighborhood of Virgen de Lujan, and lives with her family in her parents' home. She has been working selling snacks for more than eight years. Her snacks are traditional food from our country using offal and potatoes such as skewered kebabs. She sells at one of the busiest markets in the city of Santa Cruz.

Señora Silvia intends to use her loan to purchase a freezer for her business. She is grateful to the financing institution for the opportunity provided and for the speed with which they have responded to her, as this allows her to grow her business, and improve her income and ultimately quality of life for her entire family.
