A loan of $675 helped to buy a tent covering to cover her business.

María Carmen's story

Maria is 40 years old and separated; she lives in Machachi with her three children. Maria describes herself as a striving person, who is humble and a strong character, but achieves what she sets out to do.

She has been working on her own for four years selling salchipapas (fast food - fried potatoes with sliced hot dog). She has been working with FODEMI for nearly three years. This loan that she is requesting is to purchase a tent covering to cover her business. The loans have helped a lot as she can move her children ahead in life.

Her dream is to increase her productivity and improve her business, so as to live her life to the fullest with her family, who are her children.
