Maria Luisa's story

Srta. María is 21 years old and single. She sells "api" and pastries from her vending stall in the District of Cruce Villa Copacabana. This is her fifth loan cycle with Emprender. Srta. María will use the money to buy supplies, such as sugar and flour, for preparing the delicious "api" (a refreshing drink made from white and purple corn that is generally served with cheese pastries).

Her reason for requesting this loan is to expand her business. María confront challenges in her business, such as dealing with the competition since there are several vendors in the area who sell "api". By utilizing the benefits of this loan, she will continue to improve and grow in her business. María is a hardworking and enterprising young woman who is pleased and grateful to Emprender for the support it has provided.
