A loan of $1,000 helped to buy sweets, oil, eggs, etc.

Maria Rosario's story

María, 50, has had a store in her house for eight years. She sells all types of products, such as sweets, basic staple items, personal care products, and other things, just as the photograph shows. With her profits she manages to get ahead and be able to pay for her household expenses. She lives in her own house with her husband, daughter, son-in-law, and grandchild, who also help with the expenses.

María's requesting a loan to be able to stock her store with more products because she has a lot of customers. This way she'll earn better profits and continue helping with the household expenses.
