A loan of $1,025 helped to buy supplies to make lunches and broasted chicken.

Maria Julia's story

Maria is 43 years old and has an eight year old son. She works selling lunches and broasted chicken from her stand in one of the streets within the Villa Fátima zone of the city. This loan is her second with this lender. She will use this credit to buy supplies in bulk, like groceries and vegetables, for the creation of the dishes she offers. Her reason for requesting this loan is a lack of capital for purchasing supplies. Maria faces challenges in her business, including the weather and competition from other food vendors. For this reason she needs to try to reduce her costs and improve the seasoning of her dishes. She will use the benefits of the purchase of these implements and the development of them to be able to bring in more clients during the peak hours for lunch and dinner. Maria is a very hard-working person. She is happy for the opportunity provided by the granting of this line of credit.
