A loan of $1,600 helped to buy cooking equipment for her business.


Santa Julia's story

With this loan of 62,100 DOP, Santa will be able to buy cooking equipment for her food stall so that she can work more efficiently and with less physical effort. Everyone who knows Santa always rave about the flavor of the food she prepares. Eight years ago, she decided to try her luck at opening a food stall. Since then, she has acquired regular customers who come to her eatery every day to have breakfast or lunch.


Santa is married and her husband sells melons in bulk at the local market. They have six children between the ages of 9 and 26. All of the grown children work and the nine-year-old attends school. Santa wants to grow each day in her business so that she can buy a house of her own and stop paying rent.
