Maria
María, 24, shares her married life with Nelson. Her main motivation is her two small children, Juan and Naomi. She owns a house made of wood. She used to work selling food in a nearby market but decided to change her line of work due to the high level of competition her business had.

Motivated by her great capacity for good customer service she decided three years ago to manage her juice stand and soda fountain independently inside one of the local markets.

She likes her work very much because she’s very skilled in making various regional fruit juices like papaya, banana and pineapple, among others. Her customers usually accompany their delicious beverages with a sandwich or other things she makes so she must always have the necessary basic ingredients on hand to make them. This is why she wants to have back-up capital to buy various ingredients and keep her business stocked.

One of her main goals for the not too distant future is to buy a lot and start to build her house for her family’s wellbeing. This is her second loan and she wants to establish a good credit history so that she will be able to access a larger loan. She’s a very participative as well as very punctual member at her group meetings. She will use the 500 new soles to add to her capital to keep her business well-stocked with the ingredients needed to make the sandwiches and to buy fruit at wholesale.
