Laura Patricia's story

Laura has had a restaurant for the past 10 years, which has been her source of income for supporting her 4 children. She used to live with her husband in the city of Medellín, but since he died and she became a single mother and head of household, she needed to move back to the town where she was born and where her parents live. They help her take care of her 4 children. With the restaurant she has been able to overcome the difficulties that have presented themselves since the death of her husband, and that is why she works hard to make it a success. She has some difficulties with capital, but her sales are going well. Laura needs a loan to buy an industrial stove so that she can make enough to sell in her restaurant.

Her dream is to have a better business so she can offer her family a better quality of life and better economic opportunities so they can get ahead.
