Maria's story

María is from the city of Santaní. She is single and has two small children who both attend school. María lives in her parents' house and tells us that she sells notions in an ambulatory manner.

She explains that she has been doing this for some time. She has a well-developed client base because she sells her merchandise all over the city and, in this manner, has become well-known. She describes herself as a very hard-working and spirited woman who struggles day in and day out to be able to provide her children with a better future and to ensure that they do not lack any necessities.

María is requesting this loan to buy sheets, blankets, bedspreads, and other items to sell, as she has many orders from her customers and would like to be able to fill them. She is very grateful for this opportunity to continue growing.
