A loan of $1,000 helped to purchase bread, chicken, drinks, cold cuts, candies, and other products to increase her business's inventory.


Reina Emeli's story

Reina, 48 years old, lives with her life partner, who is 40 years old, and one of her daughters who is 24 years old. Her business is running a food stall where she sells fast food (bread with chicken, hot dogs, soft drinks, etc.) to the secondary school students in her community, and a grocery store with basic supplies. She has had this business for 10 years.

The loan will allow her to purchase bread, chicken, drinks, cold cuts, candies, and other products to increase her business's inventory. She hopes to have increased sales and income, which will positively meet her commitments.

Her vision is to continue running her business to have a better economic situation with which she will have the opportunity to improve her family's nutrition, clothing and health.
