A loan of $625 helped to buy school supplies.


Maria Etelvina's story

Maria lives in the Fortín area, and is an enterprising woman, as she has started making "wape" (pieces of cloth used as wipes) to sell. Little by little, traveling the streets of her area, she has started to have sufficient revenue to increase her income and begin investing in rice to sell.

Gradually she has acquired sufficient revenue to be able to meet her family's expenses. She has many ambitions for her business, but for now she cannot finance the expenses of her children who are studying at a public school. That is why she wants to buy school supplies, and this way help them with their education.
