Maria Transito
Maria, 56 years old, lives in her own home with her spouse and their children. She is a hardworking and responsible woman, and as such her family has all that it needs to get by. She has been working for a number of years selling food near her home. She has many regular customers as she sells meals at a good price.

Maria would like to expand her food stall, by purchasing tables, chairs, and other materials like chicken, meat, rice, fruit, vegetables, etc., so that she can vary her menu and increase her earnings a bit. However, she doesn't have the necessary funds to make this investment. That is why she is requesting a loan to buy the items, so that she can increase her earnings and give her son all that he needs without any limitations.
