A loan of $275 helped make improvements to her slushy cart.


María Leticia's story

María Leticia is 61 and separated with 10 children. She is a living example of the strength that women have. She is a home maker, meaning every day she has to wake up early to do all the chores, and later, go to work selling jam and slushies outside of various schools in her area. Her sales have been affected because her cart urgently needs some replacement parts, and she does not have the money to make the necessary changes. Therefore, she is turning to a loan to be able to work again as soon as possible. Her biggest dream is to have a location where she can sell her products in a constant manner, since on many occasions climate factors have gotten in the way of her making sales.
