Flor De Maria's story

Flor attended school up to second grade. She is a single mother; her partner abandoned her when her daughter was three months old.

Despite the difficulties in her life, Flor has fought to get ahead, alone with her daughter. She sells snacks and also has a small store where she sells basic products.

With her three previous loans, she was able to keep her store going, and she repaid the loans punctually. She needs a new loan to buy basic grains, detergents, fruit, sweets, beverages, bread, etc. to stock the store. She is a single mother and will get ahead with the profits.

Flor dreams of her daughter studying for a profession and having good employment in the future.
