Maria's story

Thanks to the support that Maria received in her previous loan, she was able to invest in the purchase of merchandise such as vegetables. meat, groceries, sacks of rice, oil in large jugs, beauty products, beer etc. This allowed her to offer a greater assortment of products, which in turn allowed her to improve the quality of her service and to increase her profits.

This entrepreneurial woman has lived through difficult times due to the death of her husband, but she has succeeded in moving forward with effort, dedication and strength. Thanks to this, her business is one of the most prosperous in the area.

Maria is very grateful to the lenders, and she sends them this message--"Thanks to your support, I have increased my inventory, improved my sales and my business is also growing in commercial strength."

The pandemic has affected her business a bit, due to the restrictions, but the sales have maintained generating stability in the home.

Thanks to the fact that she sells products that are of primary necessity, she needs to increase her inventory to mitigate the impact of Covid 19, due to the increase in demand.
