María Isabel's story

María Isabel is 44 years old and is a woman full of dreams and challenges. She has had a passion for crafts and decorations since she was a little girl and developed it during her childhood. She worked in various naturalist and decoration stores in the town of Bello, Colombia.

She decided to use her savings to start a business of her own, selling candles, essences, flowers, and decorations. She works seven days a week from 8:00 am to 7:00 pm. Maria is very satisfied with her business because it allows her to generate income for her household and support her son with his studies. It also allowed her to create employment.

She is asking for this loan in order to buy Christmas decorations so she can increase her sales and generate greater income that she will use to improve her family’s financial situation and quality of life.
