A loan of $1,650 helped to buy merchandise.


María Carolina's story

María, 63, is very determined to get ahead. She and her husband work hard every day from 6:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. in the store they opened three years ago. María wants to buy more merchandise because of the increasing demand from her customers. Since she does not have the resources to carry out the investment, she is requesting a loan to help increase her income so she and her family can lead a better lifestyle.
