Maria Esperanza's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to buy corn, cooking oil, and chicharrones to make traditional snacks, and to invest in staple products to open a store.

Maria Esperanza's story

María has decided to request another loan because she needs working capital to reactivate her business selling traditional snacks, which she had to close during the Covid-19 pandemic. The loan will help her buy corn, cooking oil, and chicharrones to make traditional snacks. She's also going to invest in basic products to open a store.

The result of the previous investment was positive because in the beginning her traditional snack business was growing. All this changed, though, with the arrival of the Covid-19 pandemic, because the central government imposed a lot of restrictions during the quarantine. This situation made her close her business, and her income has declined as a result.

She's very confident that the new loan will help her reopen her business as well as start a new one to sell staple products.

María's immediate family has not changed.
