Maria Guadalupe
View original language description ↓
Maria Guadalupe is married and has four children. Fortunately, they were able to acquire their own house but the mortgage has greatly reduced the family income. In order to help her husband with routine expenses, Maria began to sell tacos and hamburgers in her house, but when the demand for her products increased and she began to require the help of her older daughter to help fill her orders, together they improved the service they could offer and created a business.


At the present time, Maria is asking for a loan of $550 dollars which she will use in the acquisition of a cart so she can be able to travel to the factories with which she hopes to continue expanding her business. Maria promises to repay the loan in 6 months. Patricia and her familty sincerely thank you for deciding to help them. The wellbeing of her family is in your hands.
