Karina Ivette's story

Karina owns a canteen to generate income and cover the household expenses. She does not have children but she does have a companion. She works from 6:00 AM until 7:00 PM. The loan she requests will be used in purchasing chickens, radishes, meats, beans, cabbage, lettuce, rice, cooking oil, salt, and other items in order to prepare food and for sale later. This allows her to improve the variety of her products, increase her sales, and also attract more clientele. Her goal is to improve her family's quality of life.
