A loan of $575 helped working capital for making improvements on her vehicle.

Maria Esperanza's story

Maria Esperanza makes a living providing transportation services. Maria’s husband started this business and was previously in charge of it, but because of his age he was no longer able to get ahead. Maria took over the business with help from her 2 daughters because they needed to pay the household expenses. Getting ahead is very important to her, but at her age it is very difficult to get a stable job due to the difficulties that she faces such as her customers not taking proper care of her vehicle. She is asking for this loan for working capital, which she will invest in making improvements on the vehicle, including welding and repairing the bed of the vehicle. Her dream is to be able to purchase another vehicle.
