A loan of $725 helped to buy inputs such as groceries and vegetables.


Beatriz Marlene's story

Beatriz is 49 years old and married. She works selling food and lunch at her food stall in the area of La Mutualista in the city of Santa Cruz. This loan is in its first cycle with the institution. Beatriz will use this loan to buy inputs such as groceries and vegetables that she needs to prepare her delicious dishes. The reason of requesting this loan is that Beatriz needs the cash because when she buys wholesale, the inputs are cheaper and she can save a little. Beatriz faces challenges to her business such as having to get up very early when it is cold in order to prepare her food and to transport it to her food stall. She is going to use the profits to buy more inputs and offer her customers a better service. Her wish for her business is to have a place from where to prepare and sell her delicious dishes, and in this way move forward in life.
