A loan of $1,125 helped to buy vegetables.


María Yaneth's story

María Yaneth, 44 years old, is a single mother of a minor child, who has become the most important reason to move ahead in order to give him a better future and better educational opportunities.

She worked as an employee for more than eight years selling vegetables in different businesses in her area. Seven months ago, she started her own vegetable shop with the savings generated from years of work.

Currently she is asking for a loan that she will use to buy vegetables with the goal of expanding the variety of products and improving sales.

Her greatest dream is to have her own building in order to reduce the cost of renting and increase her profits.

She hopes that with her new business she can give her son the opportunity to access a university education.
