María Romilia's story

María Romilia is 60 years old and lives in Soyapango, located in the San Salvador department. María is a very responsible, hard working woman who lives with and supports her two grandchildren; an 11 year old girl and a 10 year old boy. She toils so that they will have all they need to live healthy and happy and to have a bright future.

María sells women’s clothing, shoes and slippers, and maternity clothes. Her business is located in the center of San Salvador, where she begins work at 8:00 am and works until 6:30 pm. She has lots of competition, as there are many types of vendors in the area, but most of her sales are because her prices are competitive.

She is asking for this loan so that she can expand her inventory and buy at lower prices. She plans to pass the savings on to her customers so that she can increase her sales and income.
