A loan of $1,200 helped to purchase crèmes, makeup, and lotions.


Maria Teresa's story

María sells cosmetics, gold, silver, and plated jewelry. She lives with her husband and three children (ages 12, 10, and 9). María operates her business as a traveling merchant, going house-to-house to visit neighbors and friends. She has been in business for six years.


María is currently requesting a loan to buy merchandise such as crèmes, makeup, and lotions. By acquiring this merchandise, she will be able to offer her customers new products so that they will have the opportunity to purchase them. As a result, she will generate more sales.


Her goal is to work on behalf of her children so that they will be well-fed, healthy, and educated. In addition, she hopes to gradually improve the infrastructure of her home.
