Maritza Maribel
Maritza has a high school education, during which time she suffered quite a bit financially when her father lost all the merchandise he was transporting. Specifically, she was making a living selling the cell phones and glasses that her father was bringing. It was very hard on her entire family, which was in shambles as they had to go hungry. This situation motivated Maritza to go out on her own and work as a sewing assistant, and she learned how to sew traditional women's garments since her mother made a living in the same activity. Now she makes a living sewing and selling these items. Maritza has her own business and has a large customer base, and she wants to increase her working capital so she can generate more income. She is requesting the loan because it will help her a lot.
