A loan of $500 helped to buy firewood.


Maryuri Gregoria's story

Maryuri is a young 21-year old woman from León, married with two children. She works as a merchant selling firewood and cosmetics. For five years she has gone out with her mother to sell firewood wholesale and retail in the neighborhoods around her community, then she sells cosmetics. This income is what young Maryuri makes to support her family.

She is requesting this loan to buy wholesale firewood, since she would like to sell greater quantities when requested and not be unable to sell due to lack of inventory. She wants to provide her children with a better future. Her goal is to make her business more profitable and productive by investing more in it and increasing her clientele every day.
