A loan of $300 helped to buy beans, rice, sugar, salt, coconuts and more.


Maria Del Carmen's story

María is a widow and she enjoys her three children who are 25, 38 and 45 years old. They all work and they help her get ahead. She works selling coconuts, and she has a store. She works at this activity every day from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.

The loan she needs will allow her to buy staple products such as beans, rice, sugar and salt, as well as coconuts. This investment will help her to increase her sales capacity to improve her profits and her payment capacity.

Her dream is to get her children ahead and for them to have good careers.
