A loan of $400 helped to buy beans, milk, eggs, bread and more.

Maria Del Carmen's story

María is 51 years old and lives in her own house with her daughter. She has a shop where she sells staple goods, such as beans, milk, eggs, bread and more. She has had the business for many years and this has given her sales experience, allowing her to earn higher profits. María runs the shop out of her home and is known by the locals. She has many customers as the place is always stocked up. María wants to expand the business and invest more but she needs capital. So, she is applying for a loan that will allow her to buy necessary items for her shop. She assures us that she will pay off the debt and is confident that this loan will give her family a better quality of life.
