María Lisseth
María Lisseth has worked for several years as a teacher in the town of Achuapa. Her position is of much importance because, through her work, she shapes the great professionals of the future. Besides, it is a way to develop the nation. For this reason, she feels very satisfied with her work.

Right now, she is asking for a loan to invest entirely in the purchase of a mill, which is a business where she offers the service of grinding all kinds of grains. She has the goal of making more income for the wellbeing of her family, since her salary does not cover the household costs.

Once she has the mill, she will begin to use it to assist her customers. In this ways she will obtain more income for the benefit of herself and for the family that she loves so much.
