Maria Ester
Maria is 47 years old and lives in a house she owns with her husband and her daughter. She is a responsible woman who strives so that her family won't be lacking what it needs.

Currently, she works selling food near her home. She has had a large fixed clientele for the last 2 years, as she gives a good price to a plate of food. Maria wants to expand her food stall by buying tables and chairs, as what she earns isn't enough to be able to buy them. She will thus be able to have more clientele and have a bit more income. This is why she is asking for a loan, and to give her family what it needs without any limitations.
