Maria  Auxilio
Maria is 49 years old, has four children, and has completed her primary school education. She is a businesswoman who lives in Managua, and started up a food sales business four years ago. When she first began her business, she only had three pounds of rice, a bit of red meat, and one liter of cooking oil. Even though she did not have much capital or raw materials, Maria did have deep motivation and a drive to succeed. Little by little, she kept increasing sales and adding new clients to her customer base, with both of those trends allowing her to keep her business active and support her family. She sells take out food dishes from her home, and her husband works at a block making company.

With the support from this loan, Maria plans to purchase rice, sugar, oil, beans, red meat and chicken, as these are all key ingredients in the food dishes she makes. Her goal is to eventually open and operate a dining hall so that she can accommodate more customers and offer affordable prices for her dishes.
