A loan of $450 helped to buy soft drinks, juices, cigars, candies, gum, and other snack products.

María Eugenia's story

María Eugenia starts her business activities at six in the morning at the site where she sells soft drinks, juices, and chilled water. She offers to sell drinks to all of the customers that board the busses that go to different communities. These customers finish their work at five in the afternoon. Her stand is located at the León Bus Terminal market. She does this work to support her family that she loves so much.

The loan will be used to buy better quality products like soft drinks, candies, gum, and juices. This way she will be able to meet her customers’ needs. She will be able to increase her sales that help her improve her quality of life.

She is grateful because she has previously received loans with Ceprodel. They have helped her increase her working capital because she buys her products for less. Consequently, when she sells them she gets income that little by little is allowing her to improve her living conditions.
