Maria Elia's story

María Elia is married to Roberto Pérez; they are a very stable couple, and above all very hard-working. They have a grocery store called “El Changarro” ("The Little Shop") which was established 15 years ago. María Elia benefits from the help of her husband and her children, who have all been able to learn a profession thanks to the family's hard work with the store. As a very united family, they are requesting this loan to invest in their business.
