Maria Melida's story
María is a seventy-seven-year-old woman, her civil status is married, and she lives in the family home. Her husband works in agriculture in small plots of land. María has a grocery shop, from which she is able to make enough earnings to purchase her medications. She is asking for a loan to invest in increasing the products in her store. She needs to buy rice, oil, bread, eggs, and flour, among others. María hopes to maintain this business since it is the only source of earnings she has.
