Maria
Maria is a 41-year old woman from the state of Queretaro. She arrived to Monterrey with her husband 25 years ago and they acquired a piece of land in the highest part of a hill in the north west area of the city (called Lomas de la Uidad Modelo). This is where they started to build their home. Five years later, her husband passed away and she had to get ahead and support her 4-year old daughter. She was selling sweets and candies at Aztlan Ave., near a well-known mall called Valle de Topo Chico.

Maria was able to support her daughter and today she actually helps her with the business. One year ago, she decided to start a new business selling natural products ("Club Naturista"), where she prepares shakes to clients daily and invites pedestrians to try her products.

The requested loan will help her to increase her income, buying different products to sell inside her club. With this additional income, she plans to buy her own space (instead of borrowing it) and to provide a better service while also keeping to create a patrimony for her daughter.

Maria es una mujer de 41 años y originaria del estado de Queretaro, llego a Monterrey hace 25 años junto con su esposo, donde se instalaron en un terreno en lo mas alto de una loma en la zona norponiente de esta ciudad, lugar que se llama Lomas de la Unidad Modelo y empezaron a construir su casa.
5 años despues de haber llegado, su marido fallecio quedando ella con una pequeña niña de 4 años y desde entonces para sacar adelante a su hija, se ha dedicado a vender Dulces en la avenida Aztlan, cercano a un centro comercial conocido en la colonia Valle de Topo Chico.

La Sra. Maria pudo sacar a su hija adelante y hoy en dia es quien le ayuda a atender la venta de los Dulces. Por lo que decidió hace 1 año, emprender un nuevo negocio, la venta de productos naturistas llamado Club Naturista, donde le prepara licuados a clientes que a diario la visitan o invita a los traunseuntes a probar su productos. Con el credito solicitado se ha propuesto incrementar sus ingresos, adquiriendo diferentes productos para la venta dentro de su club. Con estos ingresos adicionales, piensa adquirir su propio local, ya que actualmente se lo prestan, y de esa forma dar un mejor servicio, además de seguir construyendo el patrimonio de su hija.
