A loan of $1,225 helped to buy a griddle to make hamburgers for her home based business.

Juana's story

Juana is a merchant. She has had a well stocked storeroom at home for more than 2 years, and sells groceries into the evening. She lives with Milciades, and they have 2 children. They live in a neighborhood very close to the center of the city of Itá.

She says that she sells to neighbors and other customers all types of staple household supplies such as sugar, rice, dairy products, coal, yerba mate drinks, soft drinks in general, and other products. She says that she and her husband support and give the children everything they need thanks to their work.

She is requesting a loan in order to buy a hamburger griddle, as during the evenings she wants to make hamburger sales, hot dogs, and barbecues as this type of business does not exist in her neighborhood.
