Maria Cirila's story

Maria, 36, is a single mother who lives in her own house with her three children. She has had a business in her place of residence selling water, sweet drinks and sodas for six years. She has many customers and she doesn't have much competition. With what she earns from her sales she is able to pay for some of the expenses of her home.

Maria is applying for a loan to buy more merchandise in bulk to continue with her business. This is her only source of work and in this way, she will obtain more revenue and be able to give her children a better quality of life.
