A loan of $300 helped buying nutrition products to sell.

Maria Teresa's story

Maria Teresa S. R. is 36 years old and married. Her husband works as a mason. They are a very humble family who depend on her husband's income to cover their monthly expenses. She is a nutritionist, and with her own effort and that of her husband, she has been able to buy products that are in great demand among the population, and these generate extra income for the family. They have 5 sons who are in school, with some of them working and economically helping their parents.

Maria Teresa is requesting a loan for her business, to buy a larger inventory of nutrition products, since this is an expensive type of merchandise. However, her customers have a high income level, and she is well-liked within this market. She hopes that a larger investment will bring her more income, which will improve her family's economic well-being.
