María has approached MiCrédito and Kiva for a loan with which she wishes to buy shampoo, oil, soap, juice, soft drinks, salt, rice, beans, bread, cookies, dairy products, water, sanitary napkins, toilet paper, Maruchan soup, Maggi soup, and matches. In the future she would like to have a general store.
