A loan of $725 helped stock for store.


Maria Esperanza's story

41-year old Maria Esperanza has been running a small store for the last three years. She needs the income from it to support her child. Sadly Maria did not have the opportunity to go to school as her parents could not afford it. However, they taught her the most important things.

A friend gave Maria the idea of opening a store in her home; this was how she decided to earn her living this way. Her wish is for her daughter to complete her education so that she can get a good job.

The loan will be used to buy beans, sugar, oil, candy, bread, juices, and soft drinks.
