A loan of $1,100 helped to buy cement and blocks.


Maria Esther's story

Maria is 33 years old. She is a hard-working woman who has a lot of ambitions as regards her meal business. She is separated from her husband and has two children who are still in school. Maria works every day, from very early in the morning, so that she can cover her children's expenses. She sells fast food such as chicken and fries, burgers etc. from a cart. Maria has many ambitions in her business and would like this loan so that she can buy cement and blocks with which to build premises so that she can have a fixed business location and no longer have to sell from her cart. This will improve her family's income.
