Maria De Los Angeles's story

Maria is single and has no children. Nowadays she lives with her mother and her brother whom she supports economically. Another one of her siblings lives abroad.

Maria's business is making a variety of snacks to sell. She has had this business for a long time, and she got it from her mom, who was the one who taught her.

She runs her business in the afternoons starting at 5:00 p.m. Her advantage is that she has a lot of neighbors in the community where she lives, so she can sell her products easily.

The disadvantage she has is that her business is not considered essential, and if they impose another quarantine in the future to prevent COVID-19, they could shut it down.

She will invest in the purchase of vegetables, fruits, bread, corn, and other ingredients to maintain the production of snacks to sell.

The funding will enable her to have a greater ability to purchase products in order to keep her business alive and be able to improve her net earnings.

The risk in the purchase is that most of the products are perishables, so a good management of the purchases will be crucial.

She has a lot of dreams, but her priorities are to maintain a functioning business, share an acceptable standard of living with her family, and acquire a means of transportation.
