Maria Del Pilar's story

María is divorced. She has a small store that’s very well-stocked with foodstuffs. She lives in a periurban zone in Duran, a zone noted for unpaved streets and mountains. She started her business ten years ago with just a display case and a shelf. Due to demand for foodstuffs she started to buy rice and oil and gradually with effort and some sacrifice she now has her own business. She works from 6am until nightfall. She wants to use the loan to buy foodstuffs like rice, canned goods, sugar, etc. In the future she wants to continue working and enlarging her store more.
