A loan of $600 helped to buy fruit wholesale and to buy other products for adding to her fruit such as chili peppers, lemons, salt, etc.


Josefa's story

Josefa is 60 years old and her business is selling fruit near a local school. She has been in this business for a number of years and has a lot of customers. Her customers are students who buy from her because she sells fresh fruit at a good price.

Josefa is requesting a loan to buy fruit wholesale. She will also buy other products for adding to her fruit such as chili peppers, lemons, salt, etc. This will make her better profits and she will be able to continue providing for her household.
