María Antonia
Maria Antonia is 25, a housewife, and the mother of a two and a half year old son. In order to support him, she had to work outside of her home and opened a taco and hamburger business, since she can’t cover her household expenses with her husband’s earnings working at a national beverages company. Maria Antonia started approximately 2 years ago with a business that has been growing little by little, thanks to her efforts and with her husband’s help. He helps her during the weekends and in his free time.



María has a spot where she sells tacos and hamburgers. She needs assistance to make her business grow, by buying a steamer for cooking and kitchen utensils that she is lacking. She is requesting a loan for US$200.00, which she will repay in a 4-month term. Any help that you can provide will be greatly appreciated. With your help, she will be able to move forward.
