Maria Angelica
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.

La Sra. María vive en Libertad, tiene 35 años de edad. Ella empezó vendiendo gelatina y flan; luego fue incrementando el negocio poco a poco.

Hasta ahora tiene una tienda general de víveres. En su negocio trabaja sola todo el día. Teme enfermarse por lo que vive sola y no tiene a quien acudir en caso de emergencia.

No está casada, no tiene hijos a quien mantener pero con las fuerzas de Dios sigue adelante día a día sin darse por vencida, tiene sueños y anhelos que desea cumplir.

Con el préstamo solicita comprar más mercadería como legumbres, viveres, bebidas para así poder surtir más su tienda o negocio, para mayores ingresos de capital y con ello poner también un bazar y sobre todo su propia familia.
