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


A loan helped to buy meat, flour, sausage, rice, beverages, sweets, and other products to make the food that she sells in her food stall; also to sell other products.


Maria Romelia's story

María lives with her two children, ages 20 and 12 years. She has a third child, who lives with the father. She explains that, for some time, she was separated from her husband, but they both decided to resume their relationship. María's husband is living abroad and supports her economically, to cover the different financial obligations that she has.

María's business is running a food stall where she sells various foods such as "pupusas" [stuffed tortillas], meals, and chicken sandwiches. She opened the business in April 2013. In the same year, she also started a farm raising poultry, but in 2018, she decided to close it and to continue with only the food stall business. She works in the food stall Monday to Friday from 6:30 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. One of her daughters helps her to run the business.

She is requesting a loan to strengthen her business. She will buy meat, flour, sausage, rice, beverages, sweets, and other products to prepare food that she sells in her stand, and also to sell other products. The loan will help her to buy items wholesale at a lower cost, which will allow her to increase her profits.

Her dream is to make her business grow by opening a larger site, to offer her clients more products.
