Maria Leticia
View original language description ↓
Maria is a wife and mother to three children, and since she was a little girl, she has been helping her mother with making and selling pastries. Four years ago she began her own business in order to support her husband since he had been unemployed and they needed income to support their children. Since her husband didn't have a job, he began to help with the business and the sale of the pastries and they have very successfully increased their business.

Maria is asking for a loan of $375 USD to buy the primary ingredients for a term of six months to purchase and be able to go forward with her business and continue supporting her family, and thanks to the support of the loans she can do so.
