A loan of $1,675 helped to buy assorted merchandise.


Maria Isabel's story

María lives in Libertad where she has a small store. At the age of 46, María is a widow and has a four-month-old baby. She started the business when her husband died since he was the family’s source of support and since she was pregnant she had to think of her future. This is how she bought a display case that she set up in her living room starting to sell her items. She sells baby clothes, deodorant, gel, watches, perfume, cream, make-up, etc. and is open for business every day from 8am until 7pm. She thanks God that her business is well-received because her baby generates expenses and care and if she worked for a firm she’d be unable to take care of her. The loan she’s asking for is to buy merchandise because there are items her customers are requesting that she does not have. She hopes to increase her profits.
