Josefina's story

Josefina is 54 years old. She lives with her husband and her children. She is a fighter and she is responsible for providing for her family and getting them what they need to survive. She currently works selling food from a villa that she owns on a beach that is close to where she has lived for many years. She has a lot of regular customers, since she sells plates of food at a good price. Josefina wants to grow her business by purchasing tables, chairs, and more ingredients, to vary her menu. She would also like to have a little bit more economic capital, but she does not have enough money to make this investment. She asks for a loan to purchase the previously mentioned items. This way, she will have better profits and be able to give her family what they need without any limitations.
