A loan of $1,000 helped to buy a large freezer.

Jhovana Karen's story

Jhovana, 21, is single and has a one-year-old son. She sells meat at the butcher shop she runs in the forest area. This is her first loan through the institution. Jhovana plans to use the loan to buy a large freezer to keep the meat she sells.

One of the challenges Jhovana faces in her business is the competition from several butcher shops in the area. But she has many customers because of her kindness and how she treats them. The profits from the business will be used to buy another larger freezer. Her goal is to have a stable, profitable business so she can increase her income.
