Maria Esther
María Esther, 36, lives in Bolivia. She completed her studies to become a teacher. She’s divorced and has a small boy she supports by herself. María Esther works all week in order to support her son. She also makes costume jewelry to earn extra money to add to her salary because it’s insufficient and she’s always looking for ways to generate more income any way she can.

The present loan she’s requesting is to buy costume jewelry making supplies. She needs a little capital to be able to continue with her costume jewelry work and generating extra income to have a stable life because she gets no help from her ex-husband to feed her son so María Esther moves forward to support her son.
