Maria Esperanza's story

María, 70, is a grocery merchant. She’s married and the mother of two children. She’s from the city of León. She’s been working in commerce for ten years. The school term is approaching and she needs to stock her store with new food items as well as with school supplies. Because of this, she’s asking for a loan to buy notebooks, pencils, colored pencils, erasers, markers, cleaning supplies, basic grains and canned gods to sell in her store. Her goal is to gradually add more products that have high customer demand and convert her grocery store into a variety store.
