Zaida Ximena


A loan of $950 helped to buy construction materials and make improvements to her stall.


Zaida Ximena's story

22-year old Sra. Zaida is single and earns her living selling breakfast items such as coffee, herbal teas, and sandwiches at one of the markets in the El Tejar area. This will be her first loan with the institution, and she plans to use the money to buy construction materials and improve her stall so that it attracts more customers. She doesn’t have enough money of her own to buy the materials.

One of the challenges that Zaida faces is competition in the market for breakfasts. She will use the profit she makes as working capital and to make improvements to her stall. One day she hopes to buy another stall and expand her business.
