A loan of $650 helped to buy basic goods and stock her business with products that she has run out of.

Maria Celina's story

Maria is a very hardworking person who has had a general store for nine years. This is how she generates the income to sustain her household. Her great challenge is being the head of the household and a single mom to three children, given that her husband died awhile ago, leaving her a widow. Because of this, her business has been vital to moving them forward and giving them everything that they need. Since she doesn't have much capital, Maria is asking for a loan to stock her business and buy basic goods to stock her business with the products that she has been running out of.

Her dream is to be able to have this business and run it as long her health permits it, and that way she will stay active. She also wants to support her children so that they have a good quality of life and she can offer then a good quality education.
