With the profits that she gets from her sales, and with her husband’s help, they manage to pay their household expenses. She lives in her own house with her husband and their two children. Maria wishes to expand her business. That is why she is requesting a loan that will allow her to buy everything needed like perfumes, nail polish, and deodorants, etc. She has a lot of clientele because she sells her products at affordable prices. With the requested help she will be able to get improved profits. This way she will continue giving her family what they need without any limitation.
