Maritza Monserrate's story
Maritza is single and has two children. After she separated from her husband, she needed to find a way to provide for her children, and she was able to set up a food stand selling roasted chicken. She works from 11 a.m. until 9 p.m. and has an employee who is in charge of the kitchen. With the loan, she plans to purchase tables, chairs, chickens, etc.
