Maria Elena's story

María is a 51-year-old woman (she appears in the photo with her husband) who has many hopes for her fast-food store to prosper in the coming years. Her story began a few years ago. She tired of working in factories and she set up her own restaurant. She works with her husband every day. Her difficulties are sickness because there is a lot of dust. If she is tired her husband helps her with the business. He also works in building. She does not have children. Her dream is to make her store of cement and glass because a lot of dust gets in. She wants the loan for her fast-food business and to buy food such as meat, grains, bread, vegetables, etc.
