A loan of $350 helped purchase a freezer.

Maria Eugenia's story

Maria is a humble woman who is 38 years old. She is originally from Granada, is married, and the mother of two daughters, one of whom is going to school and the other is working. She is a saleswoman - she sells ice. She entered the business arena at the age of 27. She started with a small convenience store and gave her customers a lot of credit, which they didn't pay, and that is why the store failed. She decided, therefore, to get out of the convenience store business and learn the business of selling ice, which generates income daily because she has steady customers. She has her daughter's help for the business, and her expectation is to grow her business.

She is requesting this loan to purchase a freezer. The purpose is to grow her ice sales in order to have better income and be able to move forward with her family. Her future plans are to be able to start a new convenience store in order to supplement her income. One of her next goals is to be able to pay off this loan in order to get another one.
