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

A loan helped to buy an oven for baking bread.

Maria Teresa's story

María, 60, is the mother of eight children and she lives with her five eldest and grandchildren. She is a homemaker and cares for her eight-year-old grandson and two youngest children. For four years she has been running a bakery and her husband works in agriculture. With their income they cover the household expenses and also cover Maria's medical costs as three years ago she was diagnosed with an illness that requires daily hospital treatment.

Maria is applying for a loan to buy an oven because the one she currently has is damaged so she has not been able to work. She is very grateful for the support given to her business.
