Adolfina's story

Adolfina has been the owner of a small store, which sells drinks and empanadas, for nine years. She is a very friendly and hard-working person. She has already built up a good clientele in her neighbourhood, since she always has everything the customers are looking for.

She is a widow and has three grown-up and independent children. With effort she has educated them. One of them lives with her and she helps him with his studies. She says that it was very demanding to take care of her children by herself, but that with her sacrifice she managed to make good people out of them.

She is requesting this loan in order to purchase drinks and other supplies, such as vegetables and fruit, so she can stock her business since the festive season is approaching.
