Maria Ximena's story

María Ximena lives in the community of Colomi. She’s 25-years-old and has been in a common law relationship for 8 years. She works selling fruit like mandarins, oranges, watermelon and mangoes according to the season. She buys the fruit at wholesale and sells it in the city farmer’s market. She has three years’ experience in this business.

María Ximena needs the loan to increase capital. She’ll use it to for her fruit sales since she invests her savings into capital for fruit sales. By increasing her capital she’ll also increase income from fruit sales thus managing to attain an improvement in her quality of life.
