Megdulia Victoria's story

Megdulia Victoria is a 69 year old woman who has three children aged 30, 40 and 42, all of whom are independent. Megdulia has owned a fried foods business in her house for the last 31 years. She set it up as a way of subsisting and paying her household bills. She started off with her own savings and with the help of her husband, who is now a retired pensioner. Her business has become very famous in her area and everyone knows her fried foods called LA LULA and her as Megdulia.

The aim of this loan is to strengthen her work capital by means of buying supplies which she uses in her business such as basic grains, meat and other items. If she manages to buy and stockpile enough she will avoid having to go shopping so often. She plans to keep her business going so she can renovate her house in the future.
