Maria's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!
A loan helped Working capital for business.
Maria owns a large store that offers many basic goods. She also sells sausages, ice cream, drinks, and soda. The store has a phone booth as well. For the past 4 years Maria has rented a home with her husband, who is a metal worker (for car bodywork), and their 2 children. The loan will be invested in the purchase of a refrigerator to keep the sodas, ice cream and sausages in.
