Maria Francisca's story

Maria is a person who has had to overcome many difficulties in her life. However, she has always had the strength to get ahead and continue progressing alongside her children. She is a single mother and head of a family with four children, as her husband passed away a long time ago. Maria is responsible for providing for her household, and therefore works hard in the business she has had for over 15 years. Her business is a general store, where she sells stationery, personal products, toys and other items. This is her source of income and allows her to cover her household expenses. Thanks to her extensive experience, Maria has won a large number of customers for her business. She is now applying for a loan so that she is ready to offer good products to her customers over the mother’s day period. As a result she will have a wide selection of products to meet the needs of her customers, and therefore have good sales. Her dream is to continue to have a good business and get ahead with her four children, offering them a good quality of life and better financial opportunities to get ahead.
