Maria Concepcion's story

Maria is an enterprising small-business owner. She is 36 years of age and has three children aged 2, 18 and 19 respectively. She has been a client of the institution for four years now.

She sells tortillas and runs a convenience store in her home. One of her older children helps in the administration of the business.

With her previous loan she bought three display cabinets, a freezer, and two television sets to use to rent out videos games.

She will use this loan to purchase a fixed asset such as a cool-storage unit, and to buy basic grains like rice, beans, sugar, oil, beef, chicken, popular medicines, salt etc.
