A loan of $300 helped to buy "pipianes", "güisquiles", potatoes, onion, tomatoes, etc.


Dora Alicia's story

Dora is 57 years old and she is a very hardworking and kind person. She lives in her own house with her two children. For five years she has made a living selling fruits and vegetables in the market. She is able to cover some of her household expenses with the earnings she makes in her business.

Dora is requesting a loan to purchase fruits and vegetables at wholesale such as "pipianes" and "güisquiles" [types of gourds], as well as potatoes, onions, tomatoes, etc. With this she hopes to be able to offer her family a better quality of life.
