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


A loan helped to buy bread, soap, detergents, snack foods, soft drinks, condiments, soups, beans, and other products to sell at her store.


Maribel's story

Maribel studied through the sixth grade. She is a single mother, but only one of her two children lives with her and attends school.

Maribel has a store where she has been selling basic products for three years. She established this business because there was no other competition in the area. Her business is located in her home since there is sufficient space and she does not have to pay rent.

Maribel will use this loan to buy bread, soap, detergents, snack foods, soft drinks, condiments, soups, beans, and other products to sell at her store. Her dreams include strengthening her business, increasing her sales, making improvements to her home, and helping her son with his studies so that he can become a professional.
