A loan of $800 helped to buy fish on weekends and to buy beverages.

María Laura's story

María is 47 years old and describes herself as a person who is hard working, happy, generous and very responsible. María lives with her three daughters in Pastocalle.

María dedicates herself to the sale of fried fish from her food stall. This work helps her support her family and cover the expenses of her daughters’ educations. For the moment, sales are good because of her charisma and friendliness. She requests a loan through Fodemi in order to buy fish every weekend, and also to expand her business by buying beverages so she can generate even more income.

María dreams of rebuilding her home, as it has deteriorated, and for her daughters to all become professionals who enjoy a higher standard of living.
