A loan of $700 helped to buy basic staple foods, dairy products, beverages, and other items for her store.

María Maribel's story

María Maribel is 48 years old. She lives with her husband and her 17-year-old daughter in a rented house, which is also the site of her business: a store selling basic staple foods, sweetened carbonated drinks, snacks, personal hygiene products and cleaning supplies. The store has a location which is easy to access. María has run the store for only 3 years, but the business has been operating for 30 years, and it has a good customer base, generating high monthly sales. María needs a loan to invest in basic staple foods, dairy products and beverages for her store, so that there is no shortage of products and her customers can continue being loyal. She hopes that by increasing the inventory of products for sale she will be able to generate enough income to cover the economic needs of the business and of her family.
