María Candelaria's story

Maria Candelaria lives in the parish of La Sequita, which is a place with humble, hard-working people who provide for their families through their work.

She is a hard-working woman who struggles to get ahead together with her husband. They sell fruits and vegetables, offering their products in the town and other nearby locations. They have many customers who always buy from them. On the weekends, she also sells from home and sometims goes out to do street vending.

The loans are always very helpful to her. This loan will be used to buy fruits and vegetables. Her dream is to have a large market stall.
