A loan of $1,100 helped to buy more medicine at wholesale.

Maria Antonia's story

Maria, 41 years old, is a single mother. She lives in her own house with her two children, who are 11 and 9 years old. They are currently in school.
She has had a pharmacy in her home for several years. She has a large customer base because she is the only person with a pharmacy in the area. With what she earns from her sales, she is able to cover some household expenses.
Maria is requesting a loan to buy more medicines at wholesale to stock her business and make more money so she can offer her children more economic stability.
