María Transito's story

María Transito M. M. is 50 years old and lives in Ilopango, in the department of San Salvador. She lives with her husband. She owns a cottage called “Maria” in which she sells breakfast, lunch, drinks, and sweets, among other products. Maria has a very good location for her business because it is in the Route 29 bus station, a place where she sells a lot thanks to the public transportation workers. For this reason, Maria wishes to stock her business with food and drink because these products are what sell most.


She is requesting a loan which will permit her to purchase all the necessary things to increase her sales and clientele. Maria works every day to be able to get ahead in life with her husband, and be able to have everything necessary to live a decent life.
