A loan of $900 helped to buy grains, vegetables and fruit.

Maria Dolores's story

María, 52, lives in Guayaquil. She's always worked to support her children. She cooks at home and sells in a stand located on the main street. Her difficulty is competition because she does not own a vehicle to transport the food which makes it a bit difficult to do. She’s not married; she’s single but has children who are all adults now.

She wants to use the loan to buy grains, vegetables and fruit to make the food and increase sales. Her dream is to be able to rent a more spacious locale to provide better customer service since the one she has is very small; she also wants to make home improvements.
