A loan of $325 helped to buy potatoes by the quintal.

Juana Micaela's story

Juana Micaela is 51 and married. She did not have the opportunity to go to school. She has three children; none go to school. She sells fried potatoes and operates a mill for grinding corn.

She has five years experience selling potatoes and having her mill. She has the help of her husband, who is a tailor.

She is applying for a loan that she will use to purchase potatoes by the quintal (100 lb), and this way improve her sales. In the future she hopes to see her business grow, and improve her family's living conditions.
