A loan helped to buy basic necessities to sell.


Maria Auxiliadora's story

Maria Auxiliadora is 47 years old. She is a single mother and has a 7-year-old son. Her husband is a construction worker; at the moment, due to the health emergency caused by COVID-19, he cannot work.

She is a hardworking woman who, in the face of the terrible crisis that we are currently living, finds the strength to keep moving forward along with her young son. She is successful in doing so thanks to a supply store that she runs. Despite the fact that business has slowed, with the little that she sells, she is successful in satisfying the family's needs. Although the fear of contagion persists, she does it because it is the only way to earn a daily living.

This loan is to stock her store, which is short on supplies. Her aspirations are to improve her business, be healthy, and lack nothing for her little one.
