María Magdalena's story

María Magdalena C. F., 47, lives in Puerto el Triunfo, Usulután Department. She is the single mother of a daughter, 14, who is in school. María is a hard-working person taking care of her shop where she sells household and domestic products such as spices, chicken, and beef. Her business is located in her home, which works well for her because she is in a populous area with no other shops nearby, making her daily sales quite acceptable. María, wanting to see her household situation improved, is requesting a loan in order to purchase eggs, beef, and chicken among other things, allowing her to provide better service and providing greater profits.
