Maricela
Maricela is a married woman and she has three children, two women of 21 and 26 years of age and a seventeen year-old boy. Her husband has a temporary job as a gardener in the U.S. In order to help pay for their home and for her children's education, Maricela decided fourteen years ago to start her own business selling groceries. She begun with a few articles, and little by little she's increased the number of products she sells. Her store is now well stocked and she occasionally receives help from her children in Sabinas Hidalgo, Nuevo León..


To keep her business growing, Maricela is asking for $550 in credit, which she will use to purchase merchandise and let her buy more products for her store. This way she can offer better service to her clients, thus keeping them loyal to her store. Maricela trusts people that help those who need it most and she thanks you for your generosity and support.
