Maria Antonieta
View original language description ↓
Maria is married with 4 children, 23, 24, 30 and 32. She started her business because she only had an elementary-school education and it was the work that provided her with an income to live. She started 8 years ago with a small amount of jewelry bought with a loan. Later she paid cash and, little by little, the business grew until she had her own shop, well established, where she also resells shoes and "blancos" bought from catalogs.


Maria now needs a US$875 loan, to be repaid in 6 months, to remodel her shop because she doesn't currently have enough money to cover the expense. With your help, Maria can continue her progress.

María es casada y madre de 4 hijos de 23, 24, 30 y 32 años. Inició su negocio ya que solo cuenta con estudios de primaria y fue el oficio que le dejo ganancias para subsistir. Comenzó hace 8 años inicio con un pequeño lote de joyería que saco a crédito, después compro de contado y así poco a poco fue creciendo, hasta tener su local bien establecido donde además vende zapatos y blancos por catalogo.


Ahora ella necesita un crédito por US $875 que pagara en 6 meses, para remodelar su local, ya que actualmente no cuenta con liquidez para solventar ese gasto. Con tu apoyo María seguirá progresando.
