Maria Luisa
María is 38 years old and from the city of Granada. She is a single mother and has four children. Her business is offering advertising services and a mobile disco service. She started this business with just two speakers and a megaphone, announcing radio advertising, hosting product promotions, parties and birthdays. A lack of work and the responsibility she had to raise her four children did not make life easy for her and she had to find a way to provide for her family. This motivated her even more to continue improving every day and that is what she did. She now has a mobile disco that she hires out to liven up family events such as weddings, christenings, fifteenth birthday celebrations and graduations. Owing to her careful and kind service, she has managed to attract good regular customers who seek her out to liven up their family parties. In this way, with music and speakers, she earns a living.

María needs this loan to buy some short speakers as she needs to replace some that she currently has which are old and don't sound good. She also needs to provide a good service with equipment which is in a good state of repair so that she can offer her customers good quality. She would like to expand her business so that she can cover villages neighboring the city of Granada and, in the future, she would like to buy a vehicle for transporting her speakers and entertainment equipment as she currently has to pay for somebody to transport her equipment from one place to another and it is very expensive. She tells us that any sacrifice is worth it so that she can get her family ahead in life.
