A loan of $1,025 helped to expand her plant and flower nursery.

Evangelina's story

Evangelina is a 43-year-old woman who is married and mother to one son. She is very fond of nature and the environment, but above all she likes ornamental plants. From a very young age she enjoyed collecting flower petals and later classifying them by species and archiving them in a photo album that she guarded jealously. Time passed but her passion did not change.

Evangelina got married and had a son, to whom she has given all of her time and love. After three years, she her business, a plant and flower nursery. She says, "It was difficult in the beginning because I had to care for my baby and continue working, but over time I began to get regular clients and now I offer products like: floral arrangements, inside plants and all types of floral decor." She needs to expand her business and for this, she needs working capital that will enable her to create a more stable business to improve her her family's quality of life. It is for this reason that Evangelina is requesting a loan to expand her plant and flower nursery.
