A loan of $1,000 helped to buy ingredients to make food.

Jovita's story

Jovita is 50 years old and has two children, aged 9 and 12. She makes her living selling food in her stall, which is located in the Guardia section of the city of Santa Cruz. This is her first loan with this institution. Jovita will use the loan to buy wholesale ingredients to make food, like potatoes, rice, and noodles. That way, she will improve her sales and increase the capital for her business. Her reason for seeking this loan is because she lacks the capital to buy her ingredients.

Jovita will use her profits to buy construction materials to build a new space in her house. Jovita's wish is to grow her business. She is a hard-working woman and feels happy and grateful to the institution for the support it provides her in giving her this loan.
