A loan of $675 helped to buy a spatula, tongs, a table and chairs.

Sara Rosa's story

Sara, 54 years old, is a single mother of four children, for whom she works hard with the goal of offering them better living conditions. She works daily from four in the afternoon to eleven at night selling chunchurría , something that she learned thanks to one of her brothers, who gave her his business so that she could eventually take over. Today she is the owner, and she would like to convert it into the place that is most visited by the local residents. She has asked for a loan in order to buy a spatula, tongs, a table and chairs with the goal of offering better service, since many of her customers have expressed their discomfort at not having a place to sit while enjoying her product.

Her greatest dream is to be able to buy a house in order to guarantee a better quality of life and not have to worry about rent every month. In addition, she dreams that her two younger children can enroll in university and become great professionals.
