A loan of $500 helped to purchase spices and dressings to sell..


Karla Maria's story

Karla is a very hardworking woman who lives with her husband and their two children. Karla buys spices in bulk so she can put together small packets of spices to sell. She also sells fideo noodles, flour and dressings. Her husband helps her sell the products, which they sell in the street. Karla earns a living this way and supports her family daily. Karla is requesting a loan to purchase greater quantities of spices, as well as flour, dressings, and plastic bags in which to put her products. What she wants most it to have more products to sell so she can earn more. Despite the fact that selling spices is difficult due to the long days they have to put in walking from place to place, Karla is willing to work even harder to be able to have everything she needs in her home.
