Maria Angelina's story

Mrs. Maria Angelina G. is 59 years old and married. She has five children, three of whom are still in school and depend on her financially. Maria has a small store and she also sells foods like tacos, enchiladas, tortillas with cheese, burritos, baleadas, and soft drinks. The food sales provide good earnings and Maria is using them to invest in her store. She'd like to have a large store and combined with the food sales business, build it into a supermarket. Maria needs a loan to get ahead with her businesses. She tells us that she's very happy because she feels like business is good and now that she is ahead everything will be much better.
