Maria Elizabeth
Maria is a very hard-working and enterprising woman. Thanks to her parents’ support, she succeeded in graduating in hotel management, which is proving itself to be very helpful to administer her own business, a small restaurant she opened a few years ago aiming to boost her selling and so succeeding in sustaining her children. She even invested in a small general store, but the business didn’t go much far because of the low selling that did not produced the expected gains. For this she decided to invest more in the selling of meals.

She will use the loan she is requesting to buy meat, chicken, dairy products, vegetables, fruit for her fruit juices, bread and other products in order to prepare a good number of sandwiches for an upcoming national police celebration: she has been asked to be in charge of the event and to be responsible for the preparation of meals and beverages, but she does not wish to use part of the monthly amount she puts aside to buy groceries for the restaurant because she is already facing problems there every day. Investing in this event will mean good money, and this will help her cover her expenses.
