Maria Luisa


A loan of $325 helped to buy fabrics.


Maria Luisa's story

María is 34 years old, married, and has one child. She lives in the town of Masica de San Juan Pueblo with her son and her nephew.

For the past four years, María has been producing bed sheets, curtains, and tablecloths. She also mends all types of clothing. This business is her source of income and she has a good clientele. María wants to maintain materials in her inventory and offer better service to her customers. She currently asks that her customers bring her everything and then she only charges for labor, but she wants to earn more by having these materials. This is why she is requesting another loan for buying fabrics. As a result, she will be able to provide better service to her customers and generate more profit.

Her dreams include continuing to obtain more customers for her business, seeing her son continue with his studies, and not lacking anything to eat.
