A loan of $350 helped to buy a new carriage for her transportation business.


Maria Consuelo's story

Maria is a person who has always wanted to provide the best quality of life for her household. She has a transportation business that she runs along with her husband; with this business they support the household and provide their 3 children with a good quality of life. She has had this business for many years, and thanks to these years of experience, she has managed to make herself known to the people in her municipality, so that over time her customer base has been growing. This has allowed her to increase her household income, and has given her better economic opportunities for progress. Because her carriage is now very deteriorated, the cost to repair it is the same as the cost of buying a new one. Therefore, Maria is seeking a loan to buy a new carriage to replace the one she has, so that she can continue to provide transportation services. In this way, she can improve her work conditions, allowing her family to have a better quality of life and better economic opportunities for progress. Her main dream is to eventually buy her own house, to provide a stable home for her children.
