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

Vivian's story

Vivian began working and became a common-law wife at an early age. Previously she made handicrafts from plantain leaves and cork, but the work was not profitable because the artisans were not organized. This undermined her micro business. Later, she sold prepared food for a few years, but she gave this up because she had a difficult pregnancy. A few years ago, she started her restaurant business again in her house and added a bar offering alcoholic drinks. She will use the loan to buy a freezer and furnishings to expand her restaurant so that she can earn more income for her family.
