A loan of $1,200 helped to buy supplies such as rice, noodles, and potatoes.


Maria Luisa's story

María is 32 years old. She works selling food and does this from 5:00pm until 9:00pm everyday. She lives with her older siblings and works to pay her expenses. She does not have family (husband or children) - she is single. She lives in a family home in the Santiago area of the city of El Alto. She will use the loan money to buy bulk supplies for making the meals she sells such as rice, noodles, potatoes and oil as, at this time of year, the cost of supplies starts increasing and she wants to have enough supplies that she doesn't run out.
