A loan of $600 helped to buy rice, beans, salt, sugar, candy, bread, and other items.


Maria Martina's story

María lives with her family: her husband of 50 years and her two children ages 15 and 25. The whole family works hard to get ahead. María runs a small store, where she works every day. She started this store a year ago in order to earn more money.

The loan María needs will allow her to buy basic groceries such as rice, beans, salt, sugar, candy, bread and other items. This investment will help her to increase her business and customer satisfaction. María's dream is that her children finish their high school education and continue their studies.
