A loan of $1,000 helped to buy tables, chairs, and ingredients.


Maria Transito's story

María lives in a house of her own with her family. She is full of fighting spirit and a very responsible woman who does all she can so that her family can find sustenance. She has been selling food near a bus stop close to her house for several years. Her fair prices guarantee her a solid customer base. María wishes to improve her food stall by buying tables, chairs, and ingredients (such as rice, chicken, meat, vegetables, and fruit) in order to offer more types of dishes and increase her income. Since, however, she lacks the necessary funds for this investment, she asks for a loan to buy these things, in order to increase her income and provide for basic necessities for her family.
