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


A loan helped to buy 50 pounds of chicken meat and canned food such as sausages, mortadella, etc. This way she will supply the inventory of her business each time she needs to.


Flor De Maria's story

Flor is married and has two daughters, who are both adults. One of her daughters is married, has a job, and is independent. The other daughter lives with her and is going to university.

Flor is a woman who has worked in business for 25 years, but 20 of them have been with her business of selling fresh chicken meat by the pound. The business is located in the inside of the market. She works from Monday to Saturday with a schedule of 6:00 am to 3:00 pm.

She is asking for a loan because she needs working capital to strengthen her business, so she will have the opportunity to generate more economic income. With the funds she will buy 50 pounds of chicken meat and canned food such as sausages, mortadella, etc. This way she will supply the inventory of her business each time she needs to, given that she works with perishable products. Her goals are buying wholesale merchandise at a low cost, and also being able to improve the competitiveness of her business.

Her hope is to continue supporting her daughter so she can finish her university degree, so that she can have two professional daughters.
