A loan of $700 helped to buy corn and firewood, and to have her industrial gas stove repaired.


Maria Antonia's story

María needs a new loan so that she can continue investing in her business. This loan will allow her to buy corn and firewood, and to have her industrial gas stove repaired.

María's previous loan enabled her to achieve her goals as she increased her income and improved her family's situation.
