A loan of $1,125 helped to buy staple food products.


Orfa Lia's story

Orfa, 60 years old, is a single mother of three children. Because her husband left her, she has been in charge of household expenses and the well-being of her family. For 20 years, she has established and worked in her own business, which is located in the heart of the small town of Puerto Valdivia, Valdivia, Colombia. Here, she offers food and dessert services, mainly for tourists. She works daily from seven in the morning until seven at night.

Her greatest dream is to improve her sales, which is why she is requesting a loan that will be used to buy staple food products. With this, she hopes to increase the amount of food she prepares. Orfa hopes that her sales will grow with this investment, allowing her family to be financially stable.
