Cristina Amalia's story

Cristinia is 41 years old and lives in her own house with her husband and two children. They are ages 8 and 7 and are currently in school. She has been working making and selling food for 4 years, including potato tostadas, yuca, bananas, and atole (a cornflour-based drink). Her business is based in her home and allows her and her husband to cover their household expenses. Cristina is asking for a loan to buy cooking supplies such as bananas, yuca, corn, potatoes, flour, oil, and other things. This will allow her to make food, continue running her business, and give her family a better quality of life.
