A loan of $500 helped to buy a juicer and some snacks.


Carlota Aida's story

Carlota lives with her husband, her father and a grandchild. Her business is running a snack bar and she does this work because she needs to make money. She has been in business for more than five years. Her stall is located in a school and it was a friend who helped her to set up there.

Carlota needs to invest in her snack bar by purchasing a juicer and also some snacks to sell. She is requesting a loan to cover her business needs. She wants to be able to sell a greater variety of products and have the equipment she needs to hand. Carlota's ambition is to grow her business so that she can support her family.
