A loan of $1,100 helped to buy sugar, beans, eggs and salt.


Maria Lucinda's story

María lives with two children who are 19 and 16 years of age; she also lives with her husband. She runs a general store. The business arose from her own initiative. She works full-time because it’s home-based.

She is asking for a loan at present to buy merchandise like sugar, beans, eggs and salt, among others. This investment will provide growth for the business and improve her customer service.

María’s hope is that her children stay in school so that they will improve themselves and have better opportunities.
