Maria Luisa's story

María Luisa is married and has two adult children. Her economic activity is a grocery store located at home; she started it 13 years ago in order to have a work tool through which she could contribute to household expenses and thanks to support that Fundación León 2000 has provided she’s been able to invest in working capital to stay in business.

She’s currently asking for financing to buy daily consumption items like: rice, beans, sugar, salt, bread, milk, eggs, cheese, matches, ‘tiste’ [mix of cocoa powder and cornmeal], natural juices, among others.
