A loan of $1,350 helped to repair her freezer.

Irma's story

Irma has been living with her two children for about 8 years in the town where she arrived looking for better work opportunities after her husband abandoned her and she was left as a single mother, head of household. Taking advantage of an opportunity she was given, Irma started her own roasted chicken business which has made it possible for her to cover household expenses these last few years and to offer her family a good quality of life. Because the freezer she uses to store the chickens to be roasted is broken this creates a problem for her and Irma is looking for a loan to repair it so that she can continue with her business. Her dream is to have a larger business where she can generate employment for those most in need and from which she can have the opportunity to offer her two children a better quality of life and better economic opportunities.
