A loan of $300 helped to buy for supplies for the sale of roast chicken and to re-open her business.


Bertha Olivia's story

Bertha is married and has 4 children for whom she has always wanted to provide a high quality of life and access to good education. Previously Bertha sold roast chicken, but due to circumstances against her wishes, she found herself obligated to close her business and leave it for a while. Now, two months after closing the business, she has been presented with the opportunity to re-open and begin selling roast chicken again. She doesn't want to miss out on this opportunity to earn an income which she will use to contribute to paying her household expenses. Therefore, she is asking for a loan so that she can buy supplies and re-open her roast chicken business.

From this loan, Bertha will again be able to earn an income that will provide better economic conditions for her family. Little by little, her family's situation will improve. Furthermore, Bertha hopes that her children will get ahead and continue to overcome the difficulties that life presents.
