A loan of $1,400 helped to buy ingredients for the meals and to replace the tables and chairs.


Maria's story

María learned her activity working in restaurants for about 20 years and some time ago decided to open her own business using a little savings she had in order to work better and improve her income. Her greatest problem is economic which is made worse by her having been widowed and having to be responsible for her two children but she’s always worked hard for this and she expects to improve the situation. She wants to offer better customer service so is looking for a loan to buy ingredients to prepare the food and also to replace the tables and chairs which are in poor shape. Her dream is to get ahead with her own restaurant and to improve her income so that there will be better quality of life at home.
