Candida Luisa's story

Candida, 55, lives in her own house with her husband and her three children, who work and help her with the household expenses. She is a responsible woman and a fighter. She has been selling food close to her home for several years. She has a large fixed clientele because she offers good prices for her meals.

Candida would like to expand her stall by buying tables, chairs, and more ingredients to give variety to her menu so that she can have a better income. However, she does not have the necessary earnings to make this investment, so she has applied for a loan to buy these items. She will then earn a better income to give her family everything they need with no limitations.
