A loan of $1,200 helped to buy stock merchandise for her store.


Maria Juana's story

María, 34, lives in her own house. She’s single and runs a store where she sells basic staple items and items of personal use. This business arose four years ago with help from her mother and it’s been gradually growing and being stocked with new products.

She needs to buy a variety of merchandise for the business like sugar, rice, salt, oil, beans, soap and other products needed to meet customer demand. This loan will help her increase her merchandise stocking inventory; it will also help her increase the number of her customers and her profits.

Her hope is to improve each time by means of the loans developing to attain a better economic condition.
