Maria Elba's story

Maria Elba is a woman who always comes out ahead, thanks to her effort and the dedication she has demonstrated ever since she became a widow. She started a small grocery store, which has functioned very well, but she wants to offer more brands and more variety of products in order to expand her business even further. For this reason she requests a loan of $1200, which she plans to repay in 12 months.
