Maria Magdalena's story

Maria, age 63, is a very responsible and hard-working person. She lives in her own house with her husband. For several years she has had a store. She has a lot of clientele because of the variety of products that she has, her friendliness, and the good prices. With what she gets from her business she is able to pay for some of the household expenses.

Maria is requesting a loan to buy merchandise for her business. She will buy things like toilet paper, basic grains, eggs, cooking oil, and soft drinks, etc. With this she hopes to provide her family with a better quality of life.
