A loan of $1,000 helped drinks.


Zoila Maria's story

Zoila M. started her business because she needed another source of income for her family. She has a store where she sells supplies and goods, as well as breads. She works with her son who helps her starting at 10:30am. She begins to knead the dough and leaves the breads ready to put in the oven.

One of her difficulties is the pressure. She is married and her husband works as a driver. They have two children who are 22 and 16 years old. One of her goals is to build a second floor to their house so that their children have a larger space to live. For now, she wants the loan to buy drinks for her business.
