Maria Emelda's story

Maria is 47 years old widow, she lives in the El Caimito community and she engages in selling basic necessities. She runs a corner shop in her own house, where she lives with her two children. Her husband died two years ago. Maria strongly wants to improve herself: right now she has to do everything on her own, but she is strong enough to work and to keep on providing for her family. The loan she is requesting will be used to buy general products such as basic grains, dairy products, sausages and drinks. She wants to stock up her shop for the upcoming Christmas season. Her wish is for all of her relatives, all residing in the United States, to live a good life.
