Maria Romelia lives in the village of Paraje el Sauce, which belongs to the municipality of Aldea Xesuj. She is 58 years old and owns a shop that sells common groceries, located in the municipality where she lives. She tells us that she has had to fight alone since she does not receive economic support from her husband. She tells us that the help she received from past loans helped her immensely, since they were partly responsible for the growth of her business. This is why she is asking for this loan to buy groceries and have more products to sell.
