A loan of $600 helped to buy plantains, oil, and firewood.

Maria Ursula's story

María is asking for a new loan because she wants to invest, once again, in her business, reinforcing it with a greater variety of products to fill her sales space. She will buy green plantains to be fried, the oil that is necessary for this, and the firewood that will serve to let her cook her products. This will help Maria to continue working for her family.

She declares that with the previous loan, she has been able to continue her sales business, she has had a good response from her customers, and up to this moment, she has been able to maintain an income for her family. All of this, she considers to be a result of the loan that she was given and the good investments that she made.
