Maria's loan finished fundraising, but these other borrowers need your support

A loan helped purchase a floor polisher, vacuum cleaner, and new tires for my business vehicle to be able to work faster and more efficiently.

Maria's story

I was born in Mexico City and grew up in a family of 8 kids and my single mother. When I was little we would sell fruit and candies and my mother worked to mend clothing to support and provide for us. We helped with her work and attended school and she showed us the importance of being prepared. This childhood taught me to be independent and work hard in everything I do, and helped me come out ahead. I have lived in San Jose since 1992, happily married and with 5 kids. My youngest kids are still in school and my dream is to be able to eventually have a house for my family once my business is able to grow enough. I want to be able to provide so that my kids can all find jobs and be successful in their lives.
