María Inés's story

María Inés is in a very hard line of work which is the sale of seafood such as: crab, different types of shrimp, fish, shellfish and other types of seafood. She is a traveling sales woman and goes to different towns on a daily basis where she offers her products in various neighborhoods.

María Inés lives with her husband, who does similar work and shares the common goal of giving their three children all of the necessities. She is also very responsible with her home.

María is requesting this loan in order to purchase larger quantities of seafood, and therefore be able to fulfill orders from her clients. This will ensure that they can count on her and will recommend her to other clients due to her responsibility and the freshness of her products.
