Francisca's story

A $600.00 loan is offered to Francisca to improve her business. She is married and she has five children and she has a kiosk where many people come to buy every day. She will buy some additional supplies such as scissors, bags and kids games. She has been involving herself in business activities since 2002. She feels so comfortable to run her business because she can earn money every day.

Running a business has made Francisca independent because she can be responsible for herself and also help her family. She hopes to run a bigger business in the future. Her husband is a driver.
