Mayra Isabel's story

Mayra is a 20-year-old woman. She is single and lives with her parents and siblings in a community in San Juan Cerrito canton.

Mayra is a young woman who seeks to prosper and, to achieve this, she sells soft drinks and clothing. She has been working at both businesses for one year. She sells in one of the main streets in her community.

She is a person who worries about her family's well-being, and that is why she is asking for a loan. She will use it to buy construction materials to start on some improvements to her house, which is in very bad shape. Mayra has the ability to do it, and she will make it possible with the help of this loan.
