A loan of $575 helped to buy a fast-food cart and supplies.

Cruz Elena's story

Cruz Elena, 47, clearly symbolizes courage and perseverance. Since she was young she worked with her mother selling fried food and fast food in the main park in the town of Támesis, Colombia, a job that allows her to earn a living and support her mother, who can't accompany her to make sales because of her age and health problems.

Her biggest desire is to buy a fast-food cart and supplies to increase her sales and improve her family's quality of life. This is why she's applying for a loan, because she doesn't have the necessary resources to bring her dream to fruition.
