María Edith's story

María Edith M. D. F. is 59 years of age and lives in the department of San Salvador. María lives with her three children and her five year old grandson. Maria has spent half of her life working in her business which is how she has been able to get her children ahead.
Maria started her business 25 years ago making tortillas, and now she has a small stock of clothes to offer to her customers. With these two businesses Maria has been able to generate enough income to sustain her home, but now she is requesting a loan to buy more clothes, since this is in great demand by her customers.
