A loan of $1,575 helped to buy rice, chairs and tables for her encebollado business.


Sabina Maria's story

Sabina Maria is married and has two adult children.

It all began six years ago when she and her husband began selling and distributing sacks of rice. Now they are opening a stall to sell encebollados [soup usually made with tuna or steak, cassava, tomatoes and onions] which is going very well which is why they are hoping to have their own facility in order to sell the encebollados. She gets up at 4:00AM and leaves to sell them at 6:30AM.

With the loan she is going to buy items for the sale of encebollados such as rice, and tables and chairs.
