A loan of $500 helped to buy two sacks of corn, one “quintal” [1 quintal = 100 kg.] of potatoes, oil, firewood, bananas, milk, and sugar.


Otilia Argentina's story

Otilia is requesting a new loan to buy two sacks of corn, one “quintal” [1 quintal = 100 kg.] of potatoes, oil, firewood, bananas, milk, and sugar, among other materials needed for production in her business. This loan will give her the financial resources for her to continue working.

With the previous loan she managed to make a big investment because the price of the materials is less when buying wholesale. It gave her a better margin of income, and her family and their condition continues to be stable. She feels that her business is prospering.
