A loan of $1,150 helped mattresses, beds.

Maria Magdalena's story

María is 29 years old and lives in a periurban area with unpaved roads called Paraíso. She sells mattresses and beds.

She started her business five years ago to help with the family expenses. At the beginning she worked in a place selling furniture, and she was motivated by seeing the number of sales. Her husband works selling the mattresses and she works managing the place. Their sales style is to sell on credit so that their customers can pay for the mattresses in installments.

With this loan, she wants to purchase mattresses and beds to have more merchandise to sell. In the future she wants to have a furniture store and to make improvements to her house.
