A loan of $575 helped to buy stationery, sweets and to maintain her equipment.

María Sonia's story

María, who is 57, is single and the mother of a 14-year-old boy. Due to her financial situation, she was forced to look for a source of income so as to give her son a good education. Being a creative person, she set up a business in her home, where she offers internet access and sells stationery and sweets. Thanks to this venture her quality of life has improved and she now wants the business to continue to grow and become a source of employment for others. She is, therefore, seeking a loan which she will use to purchase stock and maintain her computer equipment so as to increase her sales and improve her service. Her biggest challenge has been being both mother and father, but she is thankful to God for giving her her son, who is her greatest blessing.
