A loan of $575 helped to buy wholesale supplies and a kneading machine.

Beatriz's story

Beatriz, 42 years old, is married and has two children who are 5 and 16 years old. She makes a living by preparing and selling empenadas and small pastries at her food stall, which is in the Tembladerani area. This is her first loan with the institution, and Beatriz is going to use it to buy wholesale supplies and a kneading machine for her business. She is requesting this loan because she is lacking capital, since her customer base is increasing and she has already made wholesale orders. Beatriz faces challenges in her business, including the competition found at every corner. She is going to use the profits to continue supplying her customers, and to prepare the best quality products. In the future, her dream is to move to a more spacious area.
