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


A loan helped to buy coffee, rice, sugar, vegetables and other ingredients to prepare the food she sells in her eatery and cafe.


Maria Gabriela's story

María is seeking a loan to reinforce the inventory in her current businesses, running an eatery and a cafe. These businesses are located in a park. The kiosk in the Centro Escolar remains closed due to the Covid-19 pandemic and classroom teaching has not yet resumed.

With the money from the loan, Maria will buy coffee, rice, sugar, vegetables and other ingredients to prepare the food she sells in her eatery and cafe.

The previous investment allowed her to increase her sales and generate more income.

Maria's progress has been interrupted by the pandemic, due to the fact that her businesses remained closed during the lockdowns caused by the virus.

The profit she made at the start of the investment has enabled her to get through this period without a problem. However, she gave priority to her household expenses.

Her family circumstances remain the same.
