María Jesús's story

María Jesús M. G. is 48 years old and lives in the town of Ilobasco, located in the Cabañas department. She lives with her two nephews, ages 18 and 12. Both of them attend school and also help María with the household chores and help tend the business.

María is a very responsible and hard working mother who fills the role of both mother and father and who has managed to move her family ahead. Her nephews have all they need and are able to attend school, thanks to María’s enormous efforts. She has a store where she sells food items, such as bread, sweets, and other things such as ham, and shampoo. She also sells vegetables right outside her home.

María is asking for this loan so that she can stock her store a bit more by buying large quantities of corn, and vegetables so that she can better tend to her customers’ needs and increase her sales. Getting ahead with her family is a priority for her.
