Yarumal, Colombia / Food Production/Sales

A loan of $2,675 helped to buy raw ingredients (corn) and equipment for making small arepas [grilled corn cakes].


Claudia Helena's story

Claudia is 40 years old and is a single mother with 2 children aged 20 and 5 years old. Previously she earned a living selling merchandise and with the money she saved from doing this she went into partnership with a sister who had a business producing arepas [grilled corn cakes]. At present they produce between 400 and 500 packets of arepas per day, which they sell in the local shops.

She is asking for the loan to buy raw ingredients (corn) and equipment for making small arepas. Claudia's dream is that her business will enable her to provide her children with a good education.
