Maria Elena
María Elena, 46, makes a living selling tortillas, food, and snacks in a small place in her home, where she has good sales because she's located near the central town market in San Juan Sacatepequez. Elena needs capital these days because for years she has sold traditional clothing during the Christmas season, offering garments that are in great demand such as sweaters, blouses, skirts, and shawls. She also includes toys and fruits such as grapes and apples.

This is why she needs to invest and make the most of Christmas sales, and always look after her daily business selling tortillas and food.

She's requesting this loan to buy corn and seasonal merchandise such as grapes and apples.
