A loan of $800 helped buying shelves to display her merchandise.


Maria Elisa's story

María is a young woman of 23 who lives with her father in San Miguel. She runs a store selling everyday products such as grains, rice, beans, corn, beverages and snacks, among other necessary products for the home.

She operates this business with the help of her father, and they open it every day, without a fixed schedule. Their main difficulty at the moment is the lack of infrastructure to organize the products. For this reason, Maria is requesting a loan to buy shelves so that she can display her products in an orderly manner and thus the customers can see them more easily.

Her goal is to increase the income of her household, continue with her business and improve the economic situation of herself and her father.
