A loan of $800 helped to buy a selection of fried foods.


Mileydis Elena's story

Mileydis works things out any way she can. Her goal is to earn the income she needs to have a good life and get out of poverty.

She lives in a rural area in the town of Montería and has a small business selling cell-phone minutes and fried foods and snacks. It's a very small business, but has the advantage of being very well located, which has given her constant sales.

Mileydis is asking for a loan to buy a selection of fried foods so she has a wide variety of products for her customers.

She's a sensible woman who's very focused on her goals. The only thing she wants is to be able to expand her store and serve more customers.
