María Mercedes's story

María Mercedes is a basic grains merchant in one of the largest markets in the city of Leon. She starts her work at 7:30am by preparing the products she will offer to her customers. Her business has succeeded and she has been able to provide her two children with the best education possible. Since she is a single mother, she has to be both a mother and father to her children.

María Mercedes will use this loan to purchase basic grains at wholesale such as rice, beans, sugar, and oil. This will allow her to sell them for lower prices and gain more customers.

María Mercedes is requesting a loan from Ceprodel to increase her inventory with better quality products and have more sales. This will help her earn more income so that she and her family can have a higher quality of life. She dreams of her children having professional training.
