María Teresa's story

María Teresa Q. V. D. S. is 65 years old and lives in San Martín next to her son. She has a store in her house where she sells sweets, drinks, shampoo, and other products. María has had her business for forty years and is therefore very well known in her area and can count on loyal clients. María Teresa enjoys a great reputation because since her husband died she has had to work very hard to get ahead, together with her son.

She's asking for a loan so she can get the necessary working capital to increase the amount of products she has in her store. In this way she can have a more relaxed life in which she'll have everything necessary to have a dignified life in her old age.
