A loan of $425 helped to buy puppies.

Maria Magdalena's story

María Magdalena is married and a mother to two daughters, aged seven and two years old respectively. María's husband works with her and together they have a business selling puppies. With the income from this, she helps to cover household costs and to pay for her eldest daughter's school fees. When they are able, and have the chance, María and her husband do work to improve their home. With this loan, María will buy some one-and-a-half-month-old puppies to raise and sell. With the income she will raise, she hopes to improve her living conditions.
