María Auxiliadora's story

María Auxiliadora L., age 55, is a single mother with one child. Her child is why she puts forth great effort in her business. She works from Monday to Sunday from six thirty in the morning until five in the afternoon to get her child ahead.

Mrs. L. was a housewife before she had this business. Her son, who is outside of the country, gave her economic support. She decided to set up her business of selling refreshments and bread and butter. Now she sells gift paper, soft drinks, Diana products, and chilled water in her small shop.

She has worked with us for four years. The loans she has requested in that time have been to stock her store. She buys merchandise at good prices and does not take loans from the providers.
