    Esther is a 28-year-old single mother to an infant and she makes a living selling hamburgers in the rural area of Betanzos, Bolivia, which is a popular tourist spot due to the local caves and their cave paintings. Esther and her child live in a rented room and from the same place she also rents a kitchen space which has a door that leads to the street. She uses this as a diner and she sells her burgers with egg and soft drinks from Monday to Friday at night with the rest of her time dedicated to looking after her child. She asks for a 725 USD loan to improve the kitchen space and increase the amount of seating. Her dream is have a fast food restaurant and she wants to increase sales to meet the demand and improve her income in order to support her child.
