A loan of $350 helped to buy firewood, corn on the cob and cooking oil.

Julia Emperatriz's story

Julia is requesting a new loan because she needs to invest in her business. She will buy raw materials to be able to make her products, like firewood, corn on the cob, cooking oil and other things that are also necessities.

The previous loan helped her to buy materials that allowed her to continue with normal production in her business, generating her sales and helping her family to pay for household expenses.
