A loan of $850 helped purchase inventory for the holiday season.


María Julia's story

María Julia A. E. is 55 years old and lives in the town of Santa Tecla in the department of La Libertad. Her two grandchildren Eduardo (age 10) and Fabiola (age 13) live with her. Her husband, Don Mario, is a tailor who earns a monthly income of $200 USD. For this reason, María made the decision six years ago to help her husband with the household expenses by starting her own business selling clothes and shoes.


She is now requesting a loan to buy inventory for her store so that she can take advantage of the Christmas season. During this time, many customers return to her business.
