A loan of $1,900 helped to buy trays, pitchers, tablecloths, and tables and chairs.

María Angélica's story

María, 68, was widowed several years ago, so she had to assume responsibility for the household and the education of her two children. She decided to join forces with mothers who are heads of household and start her own business organizing events such as baptisms, weddings, and social events. She does this job from Thursday through Sunday and spends the rest of the week with her family and doing the domestic chores.

María says that often she can't offer her services because of a small budget and a lack of implements, which is why she's requesting a loan to invest in buying trays, pitchers, tablecloths, and tables and chairs. She's convinced that her business will begin to grow exponentially after she makes this investment.

Her biggest desire is to enjoy her old age with her family and not suffer any economic need.
