Maria Margarita's story

Maria is a tireless fighter who gives her best every day to get enough financial resources to bring bread to her table, where her two children wait for her.

She loves her children with her soul and hopes to give them not just a quality life, but also wants to pay for an excellent education so they have greater opportunities to succeed and radically change their present.

The client has a retail clothing manufacturing business, born out of financial need. She is currently requesting a loan to buy a coating machine to improve her production processes, inventory, sales, and income.
