Maria De La Cruz
Mrs. Maria de la Cruz R. is 48 years old; she is a widow with 5 children, 3 males and 2 women. Maria has had her business for about a year, which is located in a room in her home. Everyday she opens very early and closes about 9 p.m.

To stock her business, Maria, travels to buy the merchandize since it is cheaper in the city of Choluteca and later she transports it to her home. The loan will be used to buy various products wholesale, and that way she will have to travel less, since that incurs some expenses.

She also wishes to buy school supplies like pencils, notebooks, erasers, markers, etc. since her business is in front of a school.

Sales increase a lot during school season.
