A loan of $800 helped to buy seafood to sell.


María Esperanza's story

María Esperanza P. C. is 52 years old. She lives in Santa Ana, in San Salvador department, together with her elderly father.

María is a very hard-working lady who owns a seafood stall in San Jacinto market, in the same department. María has a lot of customers, thanks to whom she has a very stable business. This is very good for her since hers is the only source of income on which she has to live. María is requesting a loan so that she has the money she needs to buy a bigger variety of seafood, which sell well. In this way, María would like to grow her business and also be able to live a stable life together with her parents.
