Maria Ester's story

María lives with her three children. She sells tamales and fruit drinks. She has experience in the business, as she has been doing it for three years. She learned it on her own initiative, and works full-time every day.

She is applying for a loan to buy merchandise such as corn, cooking oil, and chicken for the business, and also fertilizers for her cornfield. This purchase will help her improve her business, her farming production, as well as her household income.

Her greatest dream is to work to support her family, and improve her financial situation.
