A loan of $575 helped working capital for her business.


Maria Elena's story

María Elena sells stoves and ovens in general. She began with a small amount of capital from Emprender, who gave her credit so that she could grow her business. María lives in her own house with her husband and daughters who help her sell the stoves and ovens. The purpose of this credit is to allow her to buy more stoves and ovens for the celebration of All Saints and Christmas. She points out that she has more sales at the time of these celebrations.
