A loan of $500 helped to purchase rice and beans, oil, sugar, condiments, and toilet paper.


Maria Emilia's story

María is asking for a new loan because she needs to increase her sales inventory. She needs to buy basic staples such as rice and beans, as well as oil, sugar, condiments, and toilet paper, which are the products in greatest demand at her business. The previous loan allowed her to get by with her business, in order to be able to attend to her customers better. During this time her family situation has prospered and she has acquired a piece of land, which is paying off.
