María, 45, lives with her daughter in a house she owns. She is a hardworking woman who is responsible with her duties. María has a store where she sells all kinds of staple food products, such as sugar, corn, beans, cinnamon, oil, salt and macaroni, all commonly used by households.

María is requesting a loan to buy merchandise for her business, especially grains, which are very sought after. She will also buy oil, beverages, sweets, etc. in order not to lose her customers because they cannot find what they are looking for. She wants to increase her sales and reach a better financial condition.
