A loan of $800 helped to buy oil, corn on the cob, wood, and propane.

Maria Aracely's story

María is asking for a new loan to improve her business, buying the products that she needs for her business to be in good shape. For example, she will buy oil, sweet corn, wood, and propane, which are some of the items necessary to make her tamales (a traditional dish made of cornmeal, sauce, and meat wrapped in palm leaves) for sale.

She notes that the loan she received the last time allowed her to have the most needed items to make her tamales, and her living conditions and level of comfort have improved, and she has a better opportunity to make a profit.
