María Blanca Rosa's story

María Blanca Rosa C. D. G. lives in Sensuntepeque, a municipality in the Cabanas department. Because of economic difficulties, her husband has found himself having to work two jobs, one as a farmer and one as a bricklayer. Maria, in addition to raising their two children, who are only five and seven years old, helps him by running a small traveling business that sells products out of a catalog. The mobile business is hard for Maria, who gets out onto the streets everyday at 7 am to sell her products, demand for which has started to grow. Maria and her family are asking for a loan to help increase their merchandise so they will be able to offer a larger quantity of products, which will bring in new income and more stability.
