A loan of $1,100 helped to buy a refrigerator.

María Yeni's story

María, 39, makes a living selling fried snacks in her neighborhood near the school, a strategic location to sell her products. She gets up very early every day to start her job and works until the afternoon.

Currently she's requesting a loan to invest in buying a refrigerator to acquire perishable products wholesale and store them so they won't go bad.

She's certain that with this investment she'll improve her family's quality of life and be able to give her 14-year-old son a better education.

She dreams of being able to set up her business in a place where she can avoid the losses she suffers from bad weather.
