Maria Antonia's story

Maria lives in her own house with her mother and her son. She's had a store where she sells clothing, creams, shampoo, flower arrangements, gift boxes, needles and thread, and a variety of other household and personal items for a number of years. With her earnings, she is able to cover some of the household expenditures.

Maria is requesting a loan to buy more merchandise at wholesale to stock her store, so that she can provide better service to her customers when they arrive to make purchases. This way she can generate better earnings, so that she can give her family a better quality of life.
