Maritza's story

Maritza C. Z. is 47 years old. She is married to Mr. Reyes Zepeda and they have two children who depend on both of them. They have lived in the Morazan neighborhood of the city of San Lorenzo for 30 years. They have their own home in which Maritza has her business, a grocery and sweets store. In her store she sells corn flour, butter, oil, basic grains, drinks and other products. She also sells tacos, tortillas with cheese, enchiladas and sweets.

Maritza will use the loan to invest in her business because she wants to expand it and buy some products that she doesn't currently have. She will purchase beans, rice, sugar, butter, oil, margarine, corn flour, break, cookies, drinks, milk, soap, eggs, toilet paper, cereal, oats, chili, sardines, juices, pills, candles, matches and water.

Her greatest wish is for her business to continue to grow more every day and thus to have better income.
