Maria Adela's story

María has much experience in the fast-food business and contributes economically to cover her, her husband’s and her two children’s household expenses with this business. Because her family had great economic difficulties, María decided to start a business that would make it possible for her to contribute economically to her household and to improve this situation. This is how she started selling fast-food and now has vast experience and very good customers.

Despite working in this business for quite some time, the economic situation at home has been a bit complicated especially because her two children have started their university studies and she can contribute so that they can have access to them and this causes other important economic aspects at home to be neglected. Seeking for find a way to overcome her capital difficulty, María is looking for a loan to buy a large umbrella for her business to shelter it from the rain when necessary. In this way, sales will increase considerably because she will be able to offer better customer service and continue to move forward with her family. Her greatest dream is to have a restaurant where she can provide jobs for others.
