A loan helped her to buy vegetables, boxed bread, corn, beverages, pork rind, and other raw materials to prepare for her business selling French fries, hot dogs and chicken sandwiches.


Maria Luisa's story

María lives with her mother and brother. She has an older daughter who lives abroad. Maria's business consists of making chicken sandwiches, French fries and hotdogs. This business opened 12 months ago. She works every day from 2:00 pm. to 6:30 pm. Last year, she had to stop working in her business due to the COVID 19 pandemic, because there were restrictions which did not allow business considered non essential.
She is requesting a loan to have available work capital to reactivate her business. She will buy vegetables, boxed bread, corn, beverages, pork rind and other raw materials to prepare for her business selling French fries, hotdogs and chicken sandwiches. The investment will be very helpful to boost her business, because it was closed for 7 months. Her dream is to strengthen her business and to have better financial conditions.
