Maria Esmeralda
Maria, a 30-year-old single mother with a two-year-old daughter, lives in her parents' home along with her brothers and sisters. Her home, which is made of adobe and has limited access to utilities, is in Santa Rosa, a coastal city about 20 minutes from Chiclayo. Maria has lived there for 15 years.

For the last two years Maria has been selling beer and other beverages out of her home, purchasing her merchandise from wholesalers that pass through the area and then reselling her inventory at retail prices. This business yields a steady stream of income daily.

This will be Maria’s first loan with our institution. She plans to use the funds to expand her inventory and obtain greater discounts through bulk purchases. She hopes that the increase in income will allow her to grow her business and little by little improve the lifestyle of her family.

Maria is a very dedicated mother and is well-respected within the area. Her store is popular amongst the locals.
