Maria Del Transito's story

María needs to invest in her business of making artificial flowers. For this reason, she is requesting a new loan so that she will have available working capital. She will buy materials for making flowers such as wire, paper, dyes, wax, plastic, and other supplies. This will help to improve her production.

The previous loan was helpful because she was able to maintain the inventory for her various businesses, which include making flowers and raising chickens. Her businesses have improved and her earnings increased. Thanks to these results, she has financial stability. Her family has not undergone any changes, but their living conditions are more comfortable.
