A loan of $300 helped to buy lotions and vitamins like fish oil.

Maria Olivia's story

María sells natural pharmaceuticals and is responsible for her home, where she lives with two sons, the older of which already works with her. She is a single mother and so she works as a mobile vendor of natural pharmaceuticals and cosmetics. She already has several years of experience in this and has a base of costumers in the area around where she lives.

She is seeking this loan because she wants to make a bulk order of pharmaceuticals that will include food supplements, lotions, vitamins such as fish oil and natural laxatives like linseed oil. This investment will allow her to improve her offerings and gain a larger share of her customers' business.

Her hope with respect to this loan is to be able to adequately supply her business, thereby generating greater stability and in the future to be able to have a greater presence at the market. Among her personal goals is being able to buy her own home in the future.
