Maria Teresa's story

Maria lives in her own home with her children and her sister. She runs a food store and also works as a domestic employee. She suspended her business a year ago, but restarted it 6 months later. It's currently operating and so she wants to invest in it. She asks for a loan to buy sugar, corn, beans, snacks, cookies and other products for her store - things that will be useful to improve her capacity and her sales. Her goal is to grow her business, keep it well-stocked and make it more profitable.
