Maria Victoria
Maria Victoria has a 16-year-old son and two daugthers, ages 14 and 11. Sadly in 2003 her husband died, leaving her in charge of the three kids with no means of income. To keep her family together and give the children an education, Maria decided to start a convenience store, and little by little the business has grown. Recently she put in video games at the store. Her son helps her run the business in the mornings before going to school. It has been difficult for this family to deal with the loss of their father and overcome all of the family expenses, but by sticking together and working they have been able to move ahead.


Currently, Maria Victoria needs a loan of $475 to purchase merchandise to expand the product selection at the store and to increase profits. You can help improve this family's quality of life. They need your help and would appreciate your support.
