Maria De Jesus

Miss Mary is a very hard working woman. Since some time ago her husband had to leave to the United States in search of better opportunities after he was left unemployed and was given no other alternative. Following this situation she felt vulnerable because she was left alone with her 4 small children. It was then that she decided to make and sell tamales and in this manner secure an income. Thanks to this business Miss Mary and her children have a more secure well being.

Now she needs a loan of $925 to purchase ingredients and untensils to make tamales. She plans to repay the full amount of the loan in a term of 6-12 months. Help her. She and her children need you and they sincerely thank you.
