A loan of $1,500 helped to buy a freezer.

Serafina's story

Serafina is 48 years old and has three children who are all studying. She makes a living selling food. Her stall can be found in one of the markets in the zone "Plan 3000." This loan is her first loan cycle with the institution. Serafina will use this loan to purchase a freezer which she is missing. She will use it to preserve the drinks, vegetables and meats that she uses to prepare food. The reason she is asking for this loan is because she is lacking the capital to buy a freezer.

Serafina faces the challenges of her business, which include gaining clientele. She will use the benefits of her work to improve the quality of life for her family, since this is the only activity that counts.
