A loan of $900 helped to buy food products to sell.

Maria Coralia's story

Doña Coralia is a woman of 48, she has had a grocery store where she sells basic products, located in the house where she lives, for 28 years. In addition to her store, she sells cosmetics and snacks on the weekends in the market in San Raymundo.. She tells us that she is applying for this loan to be able to stock her store by buying grocery products and some Christmas fruits, since the season is coming in which she sells this product year after year, and people already know about it, so she doesn't want this year to be an exception. Now she needs capital to invest. With her work and effort she has been able to raise her daughters, but she has had difficult moments because her husband has been very sick and so hasn't been able to work well, and what he earns at times they can only use for medicine, since he is in treatment for his illness. Now she hopes that FAPE can help her continue striving for her family and especially for her daughters, who are in school and need many things.
