A loan of $500 helped to purchase provisions for the preparation of her food.

Artemia's story

Artemia is 56 years old, married, and has 8 children, 4 of which are with her, helping her in the agricultural work of her husband. When she was first married, she worked as much as her husband, working the land. After a few years passed, she got sick. Ever since then, she works preparing lunch for her husband and his laborers. And on market days in her district, she gives free rein to her culinary arts, preparing and selling food, which is very profitable since she prepares approximately 30 plates of two or three kinds. She is happy to be useful and support her husband. The only difficulty is that she cannot carry a lot of weight and always has to ask for help from her children or neighbors. This is Artemia's ninth loan and she does not have difficulty with her payments. Additionally, she is very grateful to Microfinanzas Prisma for the support that they give her. With this opportunity, part of the money is to purchase provisions for the menu and the other part to buy fertilizer for the small farm.
