A loan of $600 helped buy merchandise such as meat and chorizo (spicy sausage).


Maria Teresa's story

Maria is 48 years old and has had a butcher shop for 14 years. It is located in the market that is close to where she lives. She has many customers because she is very friendly with them and sells very high quality meat. With the income that she makes and the help of her husband, they are able to help their family progress. She lives in her own house with her husband and their two children.

Maria is asking for a loan that will allow her to buy more meat and supplies to make chorizo. In this way, she will always be able to satisfy her customers with good products and will be able to make better profits. She hopes to be able to give her family all that they need, without any limits.
