María Carmen's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!


A loan helped to buy breads, chicken, vegetables, and flavorings to make drinks, in addition to a heifer.


María Carmen's story

María is 73 years old. She attended school only through the first grade, as her parents didn't consider school to be important. She has been a single mother ever since her partner abandoned them, sadly, when their children were young.

María started working in agriculture and cattle at the age of 19, a job she learned from her father. She also has a small business where she sells breads with chicken, and drinks. Her son helps her sell the foods she makes.

She needs a loan to buy breads, chicken, vegetables, and flavorings to make drinks. She will also buy a heifer. María's dream is to improve her business, thereby improving her income.
