Maria Apolonia's story

María Apolonia B. Ríos is 62 years old. She is a single mother. She runs a business in the sale of dairy products. Maria gets up very early to acquire milk, given that she has a place that offers her milk at an affordable price, which allows her to offer it at a good price to her clients. Even though she sells her products in the market, Maria has many financial problems, however, thanks to the sacrifices that she has made she has been able to get ahead in life. The loan will be used as work capital to purchase products, such as milk, cheese curds, cheese, and cream. Her biggest wish is expand her business so that her children can someday succeed.
