A loan of $1,125 helped to buy products used to prepare meals (lunches and breakfasts that she wants to add to her business).


Maria Nelly's story

Nelly is a single mother who has 2 daughters who have helped her get ahead in her business. One of her daughters goes to college and the youngest is school aged. Nelly has a small business where she sells meals (mostly lunches). The loan she has asked for is to buy ingredients used to prepare the meals (lunches and breakfasts, which she wants to add to her business). She chose this work because since she was very young she has been fascinated by the art of cooking. She also needed to do it. Nelly's biggest dream is to have a great restaurant, for her daughters to finish their studies and to have great carreers. She is very grateful for the loan, since she can grow her business and have more income.
