A loan of $825 helped to buy a food cart for selling mango.

Paola Andrea's story

27-year-old Paola considers her family to be the most important thing in her life and ensuring their well-being is one of her highest priorities. Paola works in a shopping mall in the town of Rionegro, Antioquia but, owing to the difficult financial situation in which her household finds itself, she is requesting a loan to buy a food cart from which to sell mango. This business will be run by her aunt. It will allow her to create work and improve her household's financial situation.

Paola dreams of becoming a successful businesswoman and hopes that this will be the first of many carts that she will have around town.
