Eloysa Juana's story

Eloysa is a forty-one year old single woman, mother of six children and makes a living selling food. She is a happy person and very social. She always tries to please her clients, who visit her constantly to savor her delicious food. She conducts her business in the Janco Amaya community, a three-hour car ride away from the capital city.

Eloysa has dark skin, black braided hair, is of medium height, and uses traditional dress (poncho and skirt). Her work begins very early in the morning with the preparation of food so that it is ready by mid-morning. Later, at noon, she works selling lunch, then rests a couple of hours in the afternoon, and prepares dinner. That is her routine Monday to Sunday.

She needs to purchase wholesale the following: potatoes, rice, noodles, flour, potato starch, yuca, etc., in order to obtain better economic benefit and to pay the expenses of her six children. Her dream is to improve the quality of life of her family. For these reasons, Eloysa requests a loan to buy groceries wholesale for her business and to improve the quality of life of her family.
