María Doris's story

María Doris' smile reflects the love that she puts into her business selling meals. This is what motivates her to get up early every morning to start her work which allows her to contribute towards her household expenses. The money her husband earns is not enough to cover their family expenses. They have four children.

María Doris is a dreamer who sees herself, in the future, with her own home. There she plans to locate her business in a more organized manner and she plans to make it much bigger. This will allow her to increase her income. For now, this entrepreneur continues in her work, hoping that some day her dream will become reality.

María Doris currently needs a loan to carry out some work in her premises. She will buy another table which will allow her to work more comfortably and a deep-fat fryer to speed up her work. She will also buy some chairs and umbrellas to make her customers more comfortable.
