A loan of $575 helped to buy basic household necessities to supply the products that have been running low in the store.


Maria Antonia's story

Maria has had a general store since three years ago when she bought it from a friend who was selling it for a very cheap price. In this way she found a source of income, which she was looking for in order to contribute financially to her home where she lives with her husband and six children. Even though the business started with very low capital, little by little she has been able to grow the business and thus increase the variety products that she sells to her customers. Thanks to sales being good in the last few days, Maria is looking for a loan to buy basic household necessities to supply the products that have been running low in the store.

Her dream is to be able to make this business successful and to improve her family’s quality of life. In addition, she dreams of having her own house so that her husband and her six children have a more stable home.
