A loan of $1,525 helped to buy a computer.


María Nidia's story

María Nidia, age 39, is a single mother, and she has a 13 year old child. She resides in Vereda El Pescado in the Valdivia municipality in Colombia.

She has been selling snacks for 12 years. She sells at a small location close to the resorts in the municipality. The reason she is there is that it is a strategic sales location. This is a tourist place, and it is very popular with locals and people from the entire region.

Motivated by the flow of people, this woman wants to expand her business. Therefore, she is requesting a loan to buy a computer. She wants the computer to enhance the audio and to increase the variety of music in her business in order to improve sales.

María dreams of seeing her business grow. This will allow her to improve her living conditions and to provide her child with a better education.
