Maria Stephani's story

Maria prepares meals and sells them in the streets. She has done this for 8 years, serving meals composed of diverse plates, including rice, beans, meat, spaghetti, and vegetables like plantains, yuca, and bananas. Maria wishes to borrow 21,000 pesos to purchase rice, plantains, cassava, and other products, for use in preparing her meals.
