A loan of $725 helped purchase groceries.

Maura's story

Maura is a member of the Ccori Soncco communal bank. She is 63 years old, with two children: the eldest is 42, the other 18. She sells groceries (rice, sugar, eggs, milk, oil, pasta, flour, detergent, shoe polish, shampoo, soda, mineral water, etc.), which she has been doing for 15 years. On Saturdays she sells cooked fish, and on Sundays she sells mondongo. She has a large clientele.

She will use the loan she is requesting to buy sugar, rice, detergent, shoe polish, eggs, soda, flour, etc. Maura does not have any problems with her business, since her clients are consistent in their purchases of her products. Maura's dream is to be able to add a second story to her house and for her children to become professionals. She is thankful for the training she has received as it has been good, and she has put into practice everything she has learned with her business and her family.
