Maria Del Refugio
Maria del Refugio is divorced and has three children, of whom, 2 are already married and the youngest is 22 and is still at college. The youngest helps her in her store in the afternoons when he is free and Maria also lives with one of her married children and her grandchild and helps provide for them all. Five years ago, she began her business and since then has been the head of the house. Little by little her business has grown and she is very happy with the progress. Maria is a hard working woman, she works in her store every day from Monday to Sunday and she does so willingly as she can see her business growing and can help her family.

Maria is asking for a loan of $475 in order to buy merchandise and to buy new products such as small gifts and stuffed animals. She proposes to repay the loan in 6-12 months and hopes that the support will help her to see her business to continue to grow and to obtain a better quality of life. She and her family thank you.
