Medellín, Colombia / Food Production/Sales

A loan of $500 helped to buy a cooler and a variety of products for her business (corn tortillas, chicken, pork, sauces, etc.).


Alba Areli's story

Alba lives with her common-law husband and young son. She used to run a sewing business but ran into economic difficulties when customers did not fulfill their payment commitments. She decided to go into another business and now sells breakfast food and corn tortillas from home. She uses her own refrigerator for the business but it does not have enough storage capacity. Alba dreams about opening an independent shop away from her home, so she is requesting a loan. She plans to buy a cooler and a variety of different products to carry out her activity (corn tortillas, chicken, pork, sauces, etc.). By giving her customers what they want, she will increase sales and income and be able to improve her quality of life.
