A loan of $650 helped to purchase a food stall.


María Del Transito's story

Maria is 25 years old. She lives with her partner and two children. For seven years, she has worked as an employee selling food products in a stall in a school. Because of this, she has a lot of experience in this business and with children's tastes. She wakes up at 4:30 a.m. in order to go prepare the things she is going to sell.

The loan she is asking for is to buy the stall, since the person for whom she works is selling it, and she would like to buy it. This will allow her to earn more income for her family, improving their quality of life. It will also allow her to make improvements to her house and continue sending her children to school.
