A loan of $175 helped to buy supplies for selling food.


Esperanza's story

Señora Esperanza is separated from her spouse and has two children who are school-aged and another who is older and helps her with the business. She has made a living through the business of selling food for 12 years. Señora Esperanza says that recently her sales decreased, and consequently she has not made a profit, so she asks for the loan to re-stock her business and to offer better quality and better service so that she will have greater financial benefit.
