A loan of $1,000 helped to buy tables and chairs and to buy foodstuffs at wholesale.


Sofia's story

Sofía is 63 years old, married and has a 22 year old son; she sells food in the Villa Nuevo Potosí zone. This loan will be her third cycle within the institution. Sofía will use the loan to buy chairs and tables and also to buy foodstuffs at wholesale for her business. The reason for asking for the loan is to expand the business and provide more comfort for her customers. The challenge Sofía faces in her food selling business is competition. She will use the benefits to continue improving her business because in time she’d like to have a large restaurant to sell food. She feels happy and grateful to the institution for the support it’s provided.
