A loan of $2,025 helped to renovate her shop, where she serves food.


Mayra's story

Mayra is a very hard-working person. She lives with her husband, who is handicapped. Their livelihood depends on the income she derives from her shop, where she serves food. Thanks to her amiability towards customers and the variety of dishes on offer, more and more people are coming to eat at her shop. Mayra therefore needs to buy more kitchen utensils, chairs, and tables. The shop could also use a new coat of paint and a sign above the door, in order to enhance customer experience. For all these renovations, Mayra needs exactly one million colones. She is very happy about the opportunities afforded to her by the communal bank and its loans.
