Maria Elizabeth's story
Maria Elizabeth, age 41, is a very hard-working woman. She lives in her own house, and she has three children. Only two of them are under her care. She has been buying and selling clothes for over 24 years. She conducts her business on the street and at home. Some of her neighbors know about her business, and they do not hesitate to order from her. The week-ends are when she sells the most. She sees to her business until late at night, and she really enjoys her work. This is her first loan, and she will use it to buy pants, shirts, skirts, and other clothes.
