Maura's story

Doña Maura continues to grow and sell in her business. Thanks to her willingness and effort, she has been able to achieve a stable business. Maura tries to keep her customers satisfied by offering a variety of products. Of her two children, one is working as a teacher while the younger one continues to finish at the university. Maura has the moral and financial support of her husband, who works at a state-owned business that provides public services.

With her previous loan, Maura bought products for her store with the intent of increasing her business each day. The cost of her son’s university is already high, so she wants to support him in this objective. Today her new loan will be invested in several “quintales” (1 quintal = 46 kg) of rice, beans, sugar, corn, drums of oil, boxes of laundry soap, dishwashing soap, body soap, detergent, dairy products, cosmetics, deodorants, shampoos, razors, and other products.
