A loan of $1,500 helped to buy vegetables at wholesale.


Benita's story

Benita is 53 years old and is a long-term client of the institution. She sells hats and also has a second job selling vegetables from a stall that is located in the Chasquipampa area. She used her previous loans to buy hats at wholesale, and on this occasion, she is going to use the loan to buy vegetables and tomatoes at wholesale. Her reason for requesting the loan is that she wants to stock up on these products. Benita has to overcome many challenges to make her business work. She wakes up very early in the morning to buy her vegetables and there is a lot of competition from other sellers. She is going to use the profits to buy things for her house. She feels happy and grateful to the institution for the support that it has offered her.
