A loan of $825 helped to buy drinks (soft drinks, juice) to sell to her customers.


Eliana Jimena's story

Eliana is 26 years old, a single mother with one child, aged one. She makes fruit juice and beverages in a concession stand located in the centre of the town of Sacaba. This loan is her first with the field partner. Eliana will use it to purchase drinks (soft drinks, fruit juice and ingredients to make juice) to sell to her customers. The reason she asks for this loan is to be able to offer a great variety of products and thus attract more customers. The challenge Eliana faces in her business is that she does not have her own store. She will use the profits to continue improving her business and to make it grow, with the hope of being able to own a store where she would sell food and all types of beverages. Eliana is a hardworking and enterprising person who feels happy and thankful for the support provided by the field partner, since her stand is her only source of income with which to support her family.
