Maria De Los Angeles
Mrs. María de los Ángeles A. García is 50 years old and single. She has no children, just one nephew in her care who is 25 years old and in his 4th year of secondary. Her intent is to increase her inventory so that she has more products to offer her customers. She wants to improve the quality of life for her family since the situation in her country is very difficult. This is how she will show her nephew that you have to work hard to earn a living, which will help him in the future with his own children. Maria dreams that her nephew will be prepared professionally since it's important for his own life and to society, since in the difficult situation the country finds itself in, it's important to achieve a high level of learning and accomplish your own life goals.

Her main economic activity is running a grocery store where she sells products like cookies, coffee, cigarettes, bread, juice drinks, and more. She runs her business out of her home, and has owned the business for six years. María began her business out of need to have some economic means of supporting her family. She began with her own money from working abroad. With the money that she could save up, she decided to return to her native country and open a grocery store with a few products such as caramels, soda, eggs, and ham. This couldn't satisfy the demand of her customers, so she decided to take out a loan with Fundación León 2000, thus opening a new means of support for herself. She currently needs financing to invest in her work by buying sodas, basic cereals, telephone cards, and cleaning products. She will repay Fundación León and its sister organizations that take interest in helping people who want to work get ahead.
