A loan of $1,275 helped buy ingredients and chairs, and renovate the floor and roof of her premises.

Natalia's story

After completing high school, 20-year old Natalia, a young entrepreneur, decided to get a job to pay for university. She explains that her brother gave her a fast food stall where she works every day from 4 pm to 1 am. During the day she attends university.

“No one ever said that studying and working would be easy,” she says, “but to achieve your dreams, sometimes you have to make sacrifices.” Natalia feels that her efforts are not in vain and that soon she will be rewarded. She is happy with her job as working independently brings big advantages such as being able to manage her time.

She is now seeking a loan to buy more stock and make improvements to her business like renovating the floor and roof of her premises and buying some chairs, thus providing her customers with better service.

Natalia hopes to improve her economic situation and increase sales so that she can complete university.
