Maria Edelmira's story

Maria needs to invest more in the purchasing and selling of milk, curd, French bread, and the making of hot maize drinks and tamales. This is why she is asking for a new loan for the purchase of cornflour, sugar, corncobs, firewood, French bread, yuca, etc. This will help her have more stability with her business.

She says that thanks to the last loan, she increased her percentage of gains and had greater ease in making her loan payments. Things are the same with her regarding her business and her family.
