Maria Lucrecia's story

Maria is married and has two children, whom she always has shown to be her biggest motivation to work hard in her business. Maria has a general store where she sells staples, and thanks to this she generates income to contribute to the support of the household expenses. She already has been working a long time in her store, and this has allowed her to improve her family's quality of life and be able to have better economic stability. Thanks to the good service she offers her customers in her store, Maria has managed to attract a large number of customers, which guarantees her good monthly sales. This is why now she wants to increase the variety of products she sells in her business.

Maria is looking for a loan that gives her the opportunity of buying a refrigerator to sell products that require refrigeration such as chicken and cold cuts, among others.

Maria hopes that in this way her income will increase considerably so she will be able to satisfy more of her customers' needs. In addition, she hopes that with more income her family can have a better quality of life and her two children can have a higher-quality education.
