Maria's story

María is 42 and is a beautiful woman. She lives with Fredy, her husband since she was 21. They have 4 children, all of whom are minors, and for whom she cares in the house that she inherited when she was 22. When she finished her higher education, she began to work as a teacher. As years passed and she formed her family, she started to manage a driving school, where she earned her monthly wages. Her dream was always to have her own business, and with the help of her husband, who is a professor at the university in their state, she opened her own driving school. This is where the classes are given that the state requires all drivers to take. Thanks to her good advice, they can pass their test and start to drive any type of car. A little while ago, she received her legal papers to run her business. She still needs to strengthen it, but she doesn't get discouraged. She is sure that she will be very successful. Her dream is to open a branch in the jungle of Peru because there aren't these kind of businesses there. She belongs to a communal bank, and this is her eighth credit with Microfinanzas Prisma. She is happy there because she has financial support and is sure she will advance with her job. She promises to make all of her payments on time. María will invest the requested money in publicity for her business.
