María Del Carmen's story

María studied up to the 2nd grade in school. Her spouse has died and they had 3 children who are now independent.

María has had a store of staple products for approximately 7 years. She undertook the business as her own source of income. The store is in her house and her youngest child helps her manage it. In addition, María works raising animals.

María will use the loan to purchase rice, beans, oil, flour, grains, corn, peanuts, sesame, seasonings, etc. to sell in her store.

She dreams of growing her business and of having many dairy cows to sell the dairy products.
