A loan of $1,675 helped to buy utensils and supplies for preparing food and to pay for renovations to her food stand.

Maria Amparo's story

María learned how to manage a business by working alongside her mother from a very young age. After gaining a great deal of experience working at her mother’s food stand, María took over the business when her mother was no longer able to work. A few years ago, María’s children did not want her to continue working because of health problems. Ten months ago, María returned to her business and reopened the food stand. She is experiencing great difficulties since she does not have much capital, so María is seeking a loan so that she can buy utensils and supplies for preparing food. She will also make renovations to the food stand so that she can improve her business.

The loan will enable her to offer a wider variety of products and provide high-quality service to her customers. Her dream is to move her business forward by providing the best service so that she can improve her sales.
