Maria Jose's story

María José, 43, has been running a stationery shop for the last two years. She started the business on her own initiative to help support her household with savings from her salary because she works as a teacher. This isn’t her first loan because she’s convinced that this will help her have higher income for her family. María tells us that the most complicated thing about her business is convincing customers and this is why she tries daily to improve her manner of speaking. The loan will be used to buy binder paper, construction paper, mechanical pencils, erasers, rulers and highlighters, among others.
