A loan of $1,050 helped to buy rice, oil, sugar, eggs, and beans.


Maria Elisa's story

María lives with her husband and two children.

She runs a general store. She opened it in her home, and as in her area there are not many, it allows her to have a lot of clients. Her schedule is not fixed because it depends on circumstances and the needs of her clients.

She will buy rice, oil, sugar, eggs, and beans so she is asking for a loan to cover this investment, permitting her to expand and to have better resources in order to meet the requests.

María’s aim is to strengthen the business with this investment and satisfy her customers with her service and to have profitability in her sales.
