Maria Noeli's story

Maria sells vegetables. She is 40 years old. She lives with her husband, and they have three children, ages 17, 15, and 13. She has a business selling fresh vegetables. With her husband, they make their sales from a vehicle, traveling through different areas. She has five years of experience in this. She works four days a week, Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday.

She is applying for a loan to purchase fresh products, tomatoes, potatoes, carrots, chayotes, and cabbage. This will help her boost her business and generate more sales.

She hopes to have a larger, diversified business and to have her children go to school and prepare themselves professionally. In the future, she also wants to have her own house.
