Susana Filomena's story

Susana, age 61, is a merchant who prepares and sells hamburgers and hot dogs. She is the mother of five children and is originally from the town of San Carlos, but currently lives in Granada. Susana has been working for two years in the retail trade. She started her small business by selling hot dogs as a street vendor so that she could earn a living. Susana was then able to move forward with the earnings she generated from selling hamburgers. She has the support of her daughter and her brother. Her expectations include being able to grow her business.

Susana is in need of a loan so that she can buy a barrel and all of the supplies that she needs such as firewood, tomatoes, onions, flour, and other items. She feels that this loan will help her buy all the things that she needs to prepare her food. Her future plans include having a stable and profitable business with very good customers.
