María
View original language description ↓
María is a loving mother who works diligently every day selling a wide variety of candies, cookies and sodas. She travels around to market her products using a cart that she outfitted for this purpose. She has labored at this endeavor for five years, an activity she conducts with great optimism and happiness given that it allows her to meet her living expenses. The wish of this enterprising mother is to offer her products at wholesale, an effort she feels will bring her increased financial benefits with which to improve the standard of living of her 85-year old mother, Petronila, and most importantly, provide continued education for her 21-year old son James. María asks for a loan to help her reach her goal, and is thankful for your assistance toward her cause.
