A loan of $875 helped to expand her space and to buy tables and chairs.


Sandra Elizabeth's story

Sandra's married and has three young children. She makes a living selling food that she herself prepares, such as fried chicken, potatoes, pasta soup, and salad.

Sandra decided to set up her own business because of her experience. She had worked for some time in a restaurant of the same type and realized which dishes are in demand. This is why she decided to set up her own business, to have a better financial situation without neglecting her children.

Sandra refurbished a small space at the front of her house. She needs the loan to expand her space and furnish it with tables and chairs so her customers can eat right there instead of just getting food to go.

Sandra's dream is to have several places to sell food so she can generate jobs in her community and be able to give her children a decent education.
