A loan of $400 helped to buy potatoes, sausages, quinoa, and milk to prepare food to sell.


Maria Soledad's story

Communal bank member Maria Soledad's business is selling breakfasts such as quinoa with milk, maca (a Peruvian root vegetable), and teas. She sells as a street vendor. She has a cart where she sells breakfasts, and in the afternoon she works at her business of selling salchipapas, which is a dish based on potatoes and sausage, which she also sells as a street vendor. She has had these little businesses for 7 years already. Her dream is to have a restaurant. She is applying for a loan to buy potatoes, sausages, quinoa, and milk.

She is happy with the loan offered and promises to make her payments.
