A loan of $475 helped to buy merchandise.


Maria's story

Maria is 43 years old, is separated from her husband and has a 13-year old daughter. To provide for her daughter and give her a good education, Maria started a business selling products for the home three years ago. She already holds a full time job, but her salary isn't enough to cover household expenses, so she started this business to supplement her income. She has been able to obtain more customers and increase her sales because she sells high quality products.

Maria is requesting a loan of $475 to buy additional merchandise and continue to provide her customers with good service. She will repay the loan over a period of 6 months. Your assistance and support will help her expand her business and provide a better life for her family, for which Maria thanks you.
