A loan of $775 helped to buy a deep fryer, a cooler, and basic supplies.


Maria Rubiela's story

María Rubiela is an enterprising woman. As a young girl, she learned from her grandmother how to make different dishes such as traditional empanadas, chicken pot pies, and yellow corn cakes. Some of these dishes are a struggle to prepare. María took advantage of this knowledge to start her own business selling these products from her home.


Since that time, she has been able to support her family. Her sales allow her to contribute toward the household expenses. At the moment, María needs a loan to buy a deep fryer, a cooler, and some basic supplies used in preparing her products. This will allow her to be more efficient in her work so that she can improve the quality of her dishes and increase her sales.
