A Local Favorite Rebuilds After Fire

Adriana Scarpetta and Triny Silva fulfilled a longtime dream when they opened El Cafetal in Boise’s International Market in 2015. But when the Colombian restaurant burned to the ground just eight months later, they did not have insurance to rebuild. They had a loyal following and proven restaurant experience, but were unable to secure a traditional bank loan due to a limited credit history and lack of collateral. MoFi provided financing to help reopen El Cafetal in nearby Nampa, allowing Adriana and Triny to continue doing what they love – providing authentic, delicious Colombian cuisine to the Treasure Valley.
