View original language description ↓
Maria de la Luz is a divorcée and has custody of her four children. They have been the motivation for her to start her own business selling tamales (a Mexican dish made of minced and seasoned meat packed in dough and wrapped in corn husks and steamed) for eight years. Due to her good service, her sales increased rapidly and now, she can count on her 16 year old daughter to help her meet her customers’ demands. Recently, she has also incorporated the sales of natural products and has had positive results. Maria wishes to give her children further educational opportunities and to make a better future for them, so she works harder each day.


In these days, Maria is seeking a loan of $925 which will be used to buy merchandise of the new products she is marketing. In this way, she will be able to show them to her clients and allow them to become familiar with the goods. She knows the quality of these products guarantees the growth of her business, and she promises to repay this loan in 6 months. You can be an important part in developing this business – Maria thanks you very much for your support.
