A loan of $800 helped to buy stock merchandise for her store.

Maria Angelica's story

María, 35, lives in Libertad. She started out selling gelatin and custard and gradually added to the business. To date, she has a general food store. She works by herself every day. She fears getting sick because she lives alone and has no one to turn to in an emergency. She’s not married and has no children to support but with God’s strength she continues forward day to day never giving up; she has dreams and hopes to fulfill.

She wants to use the loan to buy more merchandise like vegetables, foodstuffs and beverages to better stock her store to earn higher income so that she can eventually open a clothing store and above all have a family of her own.
