A loan of $1,200 helped to buy instant soup, spices, bread, snacks, and soda.


Maria Elisa's story

María lives in her own home with her husband and two children. She runs a store where she sells everyday products to her customers, who live in the area. She began this with the help of a brother five years ago, and serves in the store from six in the morning until nine at night.

She is requesting a loan for the purchase of various products for her business: instant soup, spices, bread, snacks, soda, and other products that are necessary and that her customers want.

She wants to become a woman with experience in managing her business and the loans, and to grow and generate a better quality of life for her family.
