Maria Evangelina's story

María Evangelina sells all kinds of personal products, such as lotions, deodorants, hair pins, women's and men's underwear, etc. Her business is located at the end of the road where she lives. With the profits she earns from sales and help from her husband, she is able to cover household expenses. She lives with her eldest daughter.

The borrower wants to expand her business and has therefore requested a loan to buy everything she needs, such as perfumes, nail polish, deodorants and clothing. She has many customers because of her low prices. With the loan she is hoping to earn more income and continue giving her family everything they need.
