A loan of $1,500 helped purchase new dishes.


Sandra Teofila's story

Sandra Teófila is 32 years old, young and hard working. Because of unfortunate events, she has been an orphan since she was very young. She remained in the care of her grandparents, but because they had very few financial resources, they left her in the care of her godmother. Sandra’s godmother sold food for a living and she taught Sandra how to cook. Sandra also has two children who don’t know their father because he abandoned them when they were still young. In order to provide for her children, she had to work in different areas until her godmother eventually gave up her sales stand two years ago. Now Sandra Teófila sells food from the stand and, little by little, she is equipping her kitchen. Sandra will use the current loan to buy new dishes since her present ones aren't in very good condition. This will help her to continue giving her children a decent life.
