A loan of $275 helped purchase baby clothing.


Maritza's story

Maritza is a partner at the October 24th Village Bank. Maritza is married, 45 years old, and has two children who are 16 and 7 years old and study at the Francisco Bolognessi state school in San Juan. Maritza has a grocery store, but on the same block another grocery store has opened so her sales aren’t the same anymore. She has seen the possibility of putting a general goods store in Callao and she wants to set one up. She needs a loan of 800 soles to buy baby clothing. Her dream is to have another store – a general goods store - and to see her children have careers.
