Maria Elena's story

Maria, from the time she was small, wanted to own a business. Thus she consulted with her relatives (parents) about acquiring a space outside of the house to have a photocopy and stationary shop.

Currently she has a stationary and photocopy shop. Her work schedule begins at 7:30 a.m. until 10 p.m. and her sister helps her in the business. One of her difficulties is that her health has declined and she can no longer take care of her business.

With the loan she wants to purchase stationary and notebooks and also help in a restaurant. With the loan, she is going to buy stationary, snacks and colas.
