Maria Celia's story

Doña Maria is 45 years old and lives in her own house, in which she has small store. She sells basic items such as eggs, beans, noodles, as well as shampoos, soap, etc. With her profits from the store, Maria helps her son get ahead and pays her household expenses.

Maria wishes to expand her business but she does not have enough capital to do so. That is why she is requesting this loan. It will allow her to buy all the items she needs to stock her store such as basic grocery items, oil, shampoos, soaps, detergents and other items. This will help her increase her earnings and stabilize her financial situation.
