Maria's story

María is 49 years old, married to Leonard, and lives in the City of Paraguarí. The couple has 8 children, two of whom are now adults and work in Argentina, the rest of which are younger and depend on her and her husband. María sells goods from a moving stand, and has been doing so for over 5 years. With the help of her husband she has been doing this in order to get ahead. She is well-admired for being a very hardworking woman, whose daily efforts to improve her standard of living and provide her children with the things they need does not go unnoticed. She is asking for this loan in order to buy t-shirts, sports shoes, and jeans (among other items), in order to continue her sales and provide her clients with a good variety of products.
