A loan of $1,275 helped a member to buy an industrial stove and ingredients to prepare food.

Dúo Rositas De San Mateo Group's story


María Salome, 54, is from the community of San Mateo Milpas Altas. She sells food every day across from the San Mateo park. She had 10 children nine of which are married and one, a 12-year-old son, is still in her care. Her dream is that her youngest son completes his schooling since he’s about to start basic education next year.

María is requesting this loan to invest in her food sales business. She needs to buy ingredients to make the food. She normally uses firewood to cook and her space is small so she will also use part of the loan to buy an industrial stove. She hopes that she’ll be able to get this support she needs to get ahead with her business and family.
