A loan of $1,125 helped to buy a gas stove and kitchen utensils she needs to better prepare her food.


Blanca Libia's story

Blanca's husband left her 2 years ago and since then she has been a single mother to her 3 children. That is why, in order to generate income for her home she started a business selling food. With her sister, she prepares tamales, sausages, and other types of food that they make and sell in their area. Since she doesn't have a lot of capital, the big difficulty in her business is that she has to cook in a very artisanal way. That is why a stove is located on the patio and in her kitchen she just has some pots for preparing the meals. Seeking to improve this, Blanca is looking for a loan to buy a gas stove and kitchen utensils she needs to better prepare her food. Her dream is to improve this business and and keep bringing home the income she needs for her home so that her 3 children can keep having a good quality of life. In addition, she wants to do some improvements on her home so that her business can be more productive.
