Maria Bertila's story
María has been able to gradually expand her business selling all types of basic necessities from her mobile stall which she takes across the city. She has been very grateful for the support she has received and is now asking for support to buy stock for her business. Also, given the current situation she has decided to launch her business breeding small animals such as guinea pigs, chickens and rabbits. However in order to do this she needs working capital and she is therefore asking for help to buy chickens, guinea pigs, grass, feed and products such as rice, sugar and oil to do business with her neighbours and customers enabling her business to make greater profits. This will allow her to continue supporting her family, who do not have many luxuries but are surrounded with love.
