A loan of $300 helped to purchase vegetables, meat, seafood and other items for her business..


Maria Irma's story

María, 48, lives with her mother, husband, and two minor children who are attending school. She owns a business in which she devotes herself to preparing breakfasts and lunches. Her eatery is located in the city market which is very good for her since the people who have their stalls in the same place buy food from her on a daily basis, as well as the people who come to the market to shop. Her food is quite delicious and sanitary and so her customers are highly satisfied with her work. María is requesting a loan in order to purchase vegetables, meat, seafood, basic staples, fruit, spices and other ingredients for making a more extensive menu that would satisfy her customers' wishes and so fortify her business.
