A loan of $1,025 helped to buy a vendor stall.

Benita's story

Benita is 49 years old and has four children. She works selling seasonal fruits. Right now she is selling bananas, but the mango and peach harvests will soon arrive. She buys the fruit directly from producers.

On this occasion she is requesting a loan to buy a vendor stall at the market near her house because she sells from a rented stall.

Benita has been a client of the institution for many years and is responsible. In her business she faces the challenge of overcoming poverty. She will use her profits to improve her family's quality of living.

Her dream for her business is to have a stall that is stocked with a good assortment of seasonal fruits. She hopes her business will grow so she can generate a higher income.
