Maria Pricila's story

Maria Pricila O. is 43 years old, a single mother, and has two children who are her dependents. Maria does not have her own house and she has been renting for the past 8 years. Her main source of income is her fruit and vegetable sales, which she has done for the past 5 years. Maria is located on the street Calle del Comercio where the old San Lorenzo market used to be, in front of Casita Show.


She will use the loan to buy more fruits and vegetables so that she can sell a little more and that way, increase her earnings and get ahead with her children. Her daughter is currently in high school and her greatest wish is for her to graduate from college.
