A loan helped to buy charcoal to sell.

Maria Elena's story

María Elena has been a businesswoman for twelve years. Thanks to her effort and perseverance her business selling charcoal is now her primary job because little by little she has become the only wholesale distributor of charcoal. Elena manages to distribute approximately 200 sacks through different points of sale.

Elena knows the the beginning of the winter season is approaching, when producers diminish their production of charcoal. For that reason she needs capital in order to store the largest quantity of product possible in the the next months. This will allow her to have it on hand and continue serving her broad customer base well, as they trust in her and the quality of her product.
