A loan of $425 helped to buy both small and large sacks and blue barrels to sell.

Maria Auxiliadora's story

Maria has had her business, which is located in one of Chinandega's markets, for some 17 years. In her store she sells plastic products like barrels, jars and vessels, sacks, etc. Thanks to this business, Maria has advanced her children, and now, they are professionals. Maria began with her own capital.

Maria sells every day, Mondays through Sundays, from 6:00 am until 5:00 pm. She strives to have a business filled with products to offer her customers. With her income from sales, she has improved her quality of life. Previously, Maria sold only empty used sacks. She feels very grateful for the financing that we have offered, since her business is kept alive by these loans every two months.
