A loan of $1,600 helped to buy a refrigerator and supplies to consolidate herself as the main shopkeeper in her sector.

Yasiris's story

Asiros is a hard working 48-year-old woman. She has worked without rest in order to establish and keep the businesses she now has, such as a restaurant and a shop. Thanks to these businesses she has managed to hire a person with few economic resources and to offer him a way to maintain his family.

She started her business based on her own initiative because she doesn't like to take orders from any boss and she is very much set in her own ways. She thus set up a business where she could make the correct decisions in order to grow.

In her attempt to get ahead and to improve her business, she is requesting a loan to buy a refrigerator for her shop, which will attract customers that she has had to reject because of a lack of frozen products. She will also buy supplies for the refrigerator, with which she plans to strengthen her shop, offering varied goods at good prices, consolidating herself as the main shopkeeper in the sector, aspiring to form a family, raise a child and leave a good inheritance to maintain himself in her absence.
