74-Corazon De Maria Group's story

The 74-Corazon de Maria entrepreneurial bank is formed of 11 members--nine women and two men. The bank's president is Mrs.María. She is 47 years old and has two school-aged children. She works selling a variety of soft drinks every day at her sales post that can be found on one of the busiest streets in the city of Santa Cruz. She prepares a variety of soft drinks to offer to her customers. This is the main source of income for her family. She has an employee who helps her attend to her customers.

The loan will be used to buy soft drinks in bulk (soda, juice, beer, and others) in order to be fully stocked. Mrs.Maria is a very hard-working person. She has worked selling food for several years. She is very thankful to the institution for the support provided to her and her partners in the group, since in many cases they are the only ones providing for their families.
