A loan of $1,175 helped purchase backpacks, handbags, cosmetics, and clothing.


Maria De Jesus's story

Maria De Jesús is 33 years old. This is not her first experience working with loans since she completed the payments from her previous loans in a timely fashion. Maria sells general merchandise and has plenty of experience working with different customers. Her business has been in operation for more than 11 years. Maria demonstrates that she is a good daughter by helping out her mother, who also owns a business and teaches school. Over time she has been able to increase her inventory using what little earnings her business was able to generate.


The loan she is requesting will be used as operating capital to purchase backpacks, handbags, cosmetics, and clothing. Her greatest wish is to continue moving forward.
