A loan of $450 helped to buy vegetables and potatoes at wholesale for her stall at the market.

Isabel's story

Isabel is 53 years old, married with three children ages 18, 20, and 25 years old.

She works selling vegetables and potatoes. She has a stall that is located in one of the markets in the area of 14 de Septiembre.

This is her first loan from the institution. She is going to use this loan to buy a variety of vegetables at wholesale such as onions and other kinds of vegetables and also a load of potatoes.

Isabel faces challenges in her business such as getting up early in order to buy the vegetables and competition in the market because there are several vegetable sellers.

She will use the profits to continue buying things for her home and she feels happy and grateful to the institution for the support.
