A loan of $300 helped to buy bread, rice, beans, sugar, and corn.


Maria Angela's story

María lives with her three children. She sells bread from a bakery (French bread, cake, bread pudding) every day in the center of the city, from 1 in the afternoon until 6 in the afternoon.

She needs the loan to buy bread and open a small store to sell necessities (rice, beans, sugar, and corn). She plans to have the business in her house and have additional income, also helping the neighbors in the area so they can buy necessities from her.

María's dream is to have a store and improve her house so her family lives more securely and to improve their quality of life.
