A loan of $650 helped to purchase basic grains, soups, canned goods, detergents, bread, soft drinks, juices and milk.


Maria Eugenia's story

Maria is a 55-year-old hard-working woman who started her business about six years ago. She works at her store from 6 a.m. until 9 p.m., and most of her customers are very aware of the painstaking attention she provides. She is grateful for how noticeably her business has progressed at her age and feels that it has provided her with a lot of help. With the loan, she plans to purchase basic grains, soups, canned goods, detergents, bread, soft drinks, juices and milk. Her biggest goal is to have a bigger store and to finish her home in order to provide the best for her family.
