A loan of $1,000 helped to buy sandals.


Maria Yesenia's story

Maria is 30 years old and has been working for several years selling footwear. She mainly sells sandals since it is a shoe that sells more easily. She has a lot of customers because her stall is located in a very strategic area with a high flow of people.

Maria lives with her husband and their two children, aged 7 and 10 years, who are currently in first and fourth grade. With the profits that she is getting, and with the help of her husband, they have been able to manage at home. Maria is requesting a loan to buy more merchandise as she has no other cash income to help her stock the business with more styles of sandals. Then she can have better profits and keep giving her kids what they need without any limitation.
