Maria Elena's story

María wants to stock her business with fruits and vegetables and fried goods to sell. For this reason, she is requesting a loan that will help her to buy onions, cabbage, tomatoes, carrots, plátanos (banana variety), and oil. This will help her increase her sales and expand her business.

According to María, her previous loan allowed her to improve her business and she bought a bicycle to go out and sell more of her foods. Since she is still providing for the members of her family, her goal is to continue improving her home and her business.
