Maria is a 40 year old woman who is considered a responsible, enterprising, modest and hardworking person. She lives with her three children in Machaci in Pichincha Province.

María works alone as a street vendor selling fast food. Her work is very important since it is the only source of income for her and her three children. Consequently it requires all her effort and dedication. This is her fourth loan from Fodemi and she will use it to purchase two tanks of gas and a cart with a gas cooker so she can sell grilled meat, an investment that will enable her to provide variety to her clients, earn a higher income and improve her quality of life.

María’s dream is to continue growing her business with God’s help.
