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


A loan helped to buy milk and buckets to maintain the cheeses. She will increase the sales of dairy products this way because she will offer more variety.


Maria Lidia's story

Maria lives with her husband and her daughter. She dedicates herself to doing housework and also runs her own business making tortillas for sale, which is something she is now well known for in her community. She works from six o'clock in the morning until two o'clock in the afternoon. In addition to her primary source of income she also produces curds and cheeses to sell and generate extra income.

With this loan Maria hopes to buy milk and buckets to maintain the cheeses. She will increase the sales of dairy products this way because she will offer more variety. She hopes that her sales increase and generate more profit so that she has more economic availability to meet her obligations.

Maria's wishes are to share a better lifestyle with her family and work to grow her business.
