Maria Elena's story

María is 41 years old and lives in a rented house with her husband and 17-year-old child. Her husband works as a bricklayer. Three years ago, she started her restaurant business.

Everything was going well until the pandemic hit. At the moment, her sales are minimal. María is requesting a loan so that she can buy provisions such as rice, oil, sugar, potatoes, and other ingredients that she needs to continue cooking. She hopes that her sales will improve in the coming days.

María aspires to keep her business stable so that she can provide sustenance for her family. NB: The photo has been altered slightly to protect the privacy of the borrower.
