A loan of $400 helped to purchase a truck-load of green plantains to sell..


Maria De Los Santos's story

María is a homemaker who lives with her husband and her three sons. She works selling plantains and also works doing household jobs. The selling of plantains she began two years ago and she learned it from her family.

She is asking for a loan for the purchase of a freight of green plantains to sell. This loan will help her by giving her the economic means to realize her sales and to maintain her business with supplies.

She wants to improve her business with other products that in the future she will include. She also wants to obtain her own local business establishment where her products can be more accessible to her clients.
