A loan of $750 helped to buy stuffed toys and watches.

Maximiliana's story

Maximiliana, 58, is a member of the Manantial (The Spring) communal bank. She has 4 children. The oldest is 34 and the youngest is 25.

Maximiliana sells fish and seafood. She has been in this line of work for 5 years. The biggest obstacle she faces in her business is when fish prices fall or when fish is scarce prices rise and people don’t want to buy. Because of this, Maximiliana also has a gift shop that she is stocking with assorted products. The loan she is requesting will be used to buy stuffed toys and watches for her store.

The training she has gotten in her communal bank has made her a better wife and mother. She is grateful for the loans obtained because they are of great help to her when she needs them.

Maximiliana’s dream is to be able to build her house out of substantial materials in order to live comfortably.
