A loan helped to buy rice, beans, oil, flour, cereals, corn, peanuts, sesame, condiments, and other products to sell at her store.


María Del Carmen's story

María studied through the second grade. Her husband died and she has three children who are independent.

María has a store where she sells basic products. She started this business as a source of income. The store is at her house and one child helps with managing the business. In addition, María raises cattle.

She will use this loan to buy rice, beans, oil, flour, cereals, corn, peanuts, sesame, condiments, and other products to sell at her store. María dreams of growing her business and having several dairy cows for selling dairy products.
