Soley Paola's story

At the age of 20, Soley has owned a café for about two years. She works Monday to Saturday from 8am to 7pm and gets help from one direct employee. She sells snacks, soft-drinks, fried food, pastries, etc. She learned this occupation empirically through trial and error and has gradually increased her knowledge of the business’ management.

She’s a cheerful, enthusiastic, enterprising, active young woman who very much wants to make progress. This has motivated her to request a loan to buy stock (snacks, cookies, soft-drinks, fried food, sweets, etc.) at wholesale to have a wider variety of products on hand to satisfy customer demand and tastes leading to the possibility of greater sales which will positively affect her income that she’ll be able to use to advance and make her business a good source of income.

She dreams with making it well-received and to strengthen it so that it will be well-known in the sector and in the medium run in future expand the café to attract a larger number of customers that will generate a higher level of income she will use to improve her living conditions and well-being.
