A loan of $1,125 helped to make upgrades and to buy household products in order to improve the range of products sold in her business.

Maria Belen's story

Maria is a very hard worker, who along with her husband, has been able to get her family ahead. Maria is the mother of 4 children, for whom she has always wanted to provide a better quality of life. She also wants to provide them with a good education and financial stability.

Maria works with her husband in an inn, where they also have a store in which they sell all types of household products. Thanks to this, they generate the necessary income to sustain their home.

With the hopes of making their business more attractive to customers, Maria wants to make some upgrades and supply her business with more merchandise. Because she does not have enough capital to do this, Maria hopes that a loan will provide her with the opportunity to access and make the upgrades to her business and purchase household products to improve her business' supply. She hopes that her business will continue selling enough to generate income for the household, in addition to improving the quality of life of her husband and 4 children.

Maria dreams of having a large store that can offer all types of household products and be a household name which will eventually become a large supermarket.
