A loan of $1,150 helped purchase sodas, candy, and corn for her new business.


Maria Salome's story

Sra. Salome is 30 years old and married. She has a store where she sells daily consumer products such as corn, beans, sodas, cookies, and ice cream. Salome currently works because she has three small children for whom she struggles to support.

She is requesting a new loan to open a new business next to her house. Her previous loan resulted in earnings and she now has a corn mill. Salome’s dream is to have a small grocery store in the future.
