A loan of $600 helped increase her business.

María Isabel's story

Maria Isabel is 24 years old and lives with her parents and her son Diego in the neighborhood of Chillanes, in Bolivar province (Central Sierra).

Maria Isabel is a member of the rural loan group “Santa Rosa de Agua Clara”, which is located two hours away from Chillanes. The group is composed of 15 members in total, most of whom have small shops

She dedicates herself to commerce. She purchases and sells her products at the end of the month in Bucay. She is requesting this loan to increase her business. Her dream would be to have her own shop. The main challenge she faces today is competition.

She likes to spend time with her family. Her mother is also asking for a loan for her own business.
