Maria Leonor's story

María is an entrepreneurial 50-year-old woman who has lived in her own home along with her family group of two children and two grandchildren for 22 years. She has a store in her home which, with much effort, she was able to open, and from her small business she supports her household economically.
María wishes to improve her income because of which she is requesting a loan from FUSAI to invest in: basic staples such as coffee, sugar, rice, beans, milk, soft-drinks, and the supplies necessary to stock her business and to be able to offer a greater variety of products to her loyal customers.
