Severina's story

Mrs. Severina is 57 years old and has a son that supports himself. She sells prepared lunches from a stall that is located in San Jose. This is her first loan from this institution. Mrs. Severina is going to use this loan to buy supplies wholesale. She will buy groceries and fresh vegetables to be used in her prepared dishes. The reason that she is requesting this loan is the she doesn’t have cash to buy supplies. Mrs. Severina has challenges with her business such as the climate and competition from others that make prepared food. Therefore she needs to reduce her costs and improve the condition of her food. She is going to use the loan to buy utensils and also to increase the size of her stall in order to accommodate more customers during the busiest lunch hours. Mrs. Severina is a hardworking woman who is grateful for the opportunities that are provided by this loan.
