A loan of $500 helped to buy tables and chairs, and more ingredients such as rice, meat, chicken, fruit, vegetables, etc.


Isabel's story

Isabel, age 50, lives with her companion and her daughter. She has been a hardworking and responsible woman so that her family lacks for nothing they need to live.

Currently, she works selling food near her place of residence. She has been doing this for twenty years. She has a lot of regular customers because she charges a good price for a plate of food.

Isabel wants to enlarge her stand, that is to say, buy tables, chairs, and more ingredients such as rice, meat, chicken, fruit, vegetables, etc., to vary her menu and have a little more coming in, financially. She doesn’t have enough income for this investment, and so because of this she is asking for a loan to buy the aforementioned items. In this way, she can get better earnings to give her family what they need without any restriction.
