A loan of $1,100 helped to buy a cooler, shelving, fruits, and vegetables.


María Liliana's story

María is a young woman who is 29 years of age. She learned how to work from a very young age due to her family’s difficult financial situation. Thanks to her father, who owned a legume stand, María learned his trade and is now in the same line of work. She has managed her own business for five years and this enables her to support herself and her mother. María dreams of expanding her business and opening new locations since this will provide other people with the opportunity to work.


In order to pursue this dream, María is requesting a loan so that she can invest in the purchase of a cooler, shelving, fruits, and vegetables. She believes this investment will improve her level of sales and her family’s quality of life.
