Maria Minerva's story

Sra. María Minerva is married to Francisco and they have one son who is three months old. She is requesting a loan to buy groceries because she is going to set up a grocery story to help earn household income and help her husband who works in the fields.

She, herself, was inspired to do this because she wants to be able to help pay their expenses and have a place to work, thereby obtaining a better quality of life. Her greatest wish is to use the loan to buy merchandise so she can begin setting up her store.
