America Piedad's story

América is 66 years old and single. Her mom taught her to cook when she was a little girl and it was a privilege for her because she has always enjoyed cooking. América has a small eatery where she sells lunches. She works there from 7.00am to 2.30pm alongside one of her daughters. Her difficulty is that she has been a little unwell. Her goal is to be able to expand her business, buying more pans and remodeling her premises. She currently works together with her daughter. América's goal is to hire more cooks so that she can turn her small lunch spot into a very well-known restaurant. She would like to use her loan to buy more kitchenware such as plates, spoons, pans, etc.
