María Esther's story

Maria is 42 years old, is a single mother, and has 5 children. The two oldest children are already engaged and she has three daughters attending school. She lives in her own house in Piura, Peru.

María is an enterprising woman who has spent 5 years selling products of home essentials, meals, soda, beer, sweets, and more. She works every day, bother weekdays and weekends to get ahead and provide a good education for her youngest daughters.

María is very grateful for COOPAC Norandino for offering her a loan so she can grow her business and offer better products to her clients, thereby increasing her sales and income.
