A loan of $500 helped to buy meat, bread, soft-drinks, sugar, oil, etc.

Maria Rosmery's story

Rosmery has three children who are 18, 17 and 14 years of age. Her oldest son attends university, her daughter attends high-school and her youngest son is finishing basic level.

Seeing the various needs her children had, Rosmery started four years ago to sell snacks at various schools. Thanks to her earnings she’s been able to partly help support her children’s education.

Rosmery is asking for this loan to buy meat, bread, soft-drinks, sugar, oil, etc. She has a small stand in the San Juan Sacatepequez market where she starts to make bread with chicken, chow-mein, beans, atol [corn and milk based drink], beverages and blended drinks very early to then take to students who know her and seek out her services daily while attending classes. Rosmery wants to continue supporting her children’s schooling and see them become successful people in the future.
