A loan of $1,125 helped to buy a variety of household products for her store..


Maria Lucelly's story

Maria previously had a general store at another location that was rented. A few days before her lease expired, she was asked to move everything and had to start her business over in a new location in a different neighborhood. This resulted in great difficulties in making sales since her business was new to the area and she did not know the local customers well enough to improve her sales activity. Nonetheless, she was able to move her business forward through hard work even though she does not have sufficient capital.

Maria is requesting a loan so that she can buy an inventory of household products and offer greater variety to her customers. Her dream is to position her business for better sales so that she can provide her family with a better quality of life.
