A loan of $1,625 helped to buy clothing.


María Aceneth's story

50-year-old María is a single mother with four children. She has put her heart and soul into bringing up her children on her own as her husband left her without fulfilling any of his responsibilities. As a single mother who also had housework to take care of, María started out selling clothing from home. Later, as her number of customers increased and her products became popular, she rented a sales location. She has been in the market for more than 10 years now and this gives her a lot of security and satisfaction. María's biggest wish is to continue growing her business. She is requesting this loan to invest in buying merchandise which will allow her to increase her sales and make more income so that she can improve her family's living conditions and guarantee her children a better education.
