A loan of $1,500 helped to buy ingredients for making hamburgers and french fries, and to invest in the purchase of a large industrial kitchen for making fast food.

Córdula's story

Córdula is a fifty-seven-year-old woman who considers herself to be a winning, positive, responsible, and very hardworking person. She lives with her son in the Pimampiro canton. She sells burgers and fries, a business that helps covers some of her household expenses.

The loan Córdula is seeking is to buy ingredients for making burgers and fries and also to purchase a bigger industrial kitchen for making fast food. She needs to make the investment because she is seeing a lot of demand in the market, and even more at the market fairs she sells at three days a week. The investment will help her generate more income so she'll be able to improve her family's quality of life.

Córdula's dream is to have a larger and fancier locale where she can sell her burgers and fries and use the income to help her grandchildren, whom she loves and cares for so much.
