Along with her family she has worked a lot to be able to provide for her family and get ahead.

Maria is requesting the support of this loan to buy sugar, lard, soap, soft drinks, sauces, pastas, rice, beans, churros (fried pastries similar to doughnuts), eggs, juices etc. in order to provide better service to her customers.

Maria dreams of having a larger location for her store in order to be able to better wait on her customers. She would then have more income and assets to help improve a little her family’s quality of life.
