Maria Isabel's story

Maria is 43 years old. She has a store where she sells staples such as beans, milk, eggs, bread, candy, soft drinks, and other items. She has been in business many years and this has given her sales experience allowing her the best earnings. She lives in the home of a family member with her husband and children.

The business is located in the home where she is living in a busy locality and is well known by the locals. She has many customers as she has a well stocked store.

She wants to expand the business and make a new investment but she needs capital so she is requesting a loan in order to buy what she needs for the store. She is sure that she can pay off the loan and at the same time confident that she can give her family a better quality of life.
