Amigas Por Siempre 2017 Group's story

This is Maria's story. She is a customer who, through the mishaps of life, became a widow 6 years ago, leaving her responsible for raising her two children. Seeing that she was the sole pillar supporting her family, she decided to open a small neighborhood store in order to sustain them all.
Every day she fights to improve her standard of living and she dreams of having a full store. She is requesting the loan to stock her store and to give her family a better manner of living.
