Maria Elena's story

María Elena, 26, despite not having a stable job decided to start her own business: a jewelry store. One of the problems is that her husband is the person who helps her in the business but he has problems with his spine and sometimes is unable to do so. She has a 7-year-old son in her care and she takes care of providing everything necessary for him. This will be her second loan and she’ll use it to buy silver, gold, pearls and tools, among others.
