A loan of $1,650 helped to buy staple food supplies for her store.


María Estella's story

María Estella, 68, is originally from the countryside. She has worked in her store for more than fifteen years, something that helped her raise her children and pay for their education. With her hard work and discipline, she has managed to keep her business going, although she recognizes that she has been close to closing it due to some customers owing her money and not paying it back. She decided not to sell on credit anymore.

María is now requesting a loan to buy staple food supplies with the intention to offer a better service and to improve her income.
