Maria is married, and her husband is a contracted security guard but does not make much income. They have two small children, one in preschool, the other in primary school, and given that there were a lot of expenses and little to pay it with from her husband Maria decided to start her business to generate extra income. Little by little she was able to set up a convenience store, and the business has given the economic stability it needed.

Now Maria is requesting a loan of $975, which she plans to repay in six months, to purchase merchandise for her store. With your help, Maria can make her business grow.
