A loan of $1,275 helped to buy chickens and cooking utensils.


Maria De Lourdes's story

María is 42 years old, single, and doesn't have any children. Her family have always been in the food business. María has been in this line of work since she was very young. She started her own food business so that she could have her own things.

María started working with her family and saved money so that she could one day open her own business. Then, the opportunity to own her own business presented itself. She has been working for herself for two years and her restaurant is doing very well.

María works alone, from 9.00am to 11.00pm. She would like to use this loan to buy chickens and cooking utensils. Her goal is to keep running her restaurant. She would like to provide her family with the best.
