Maria Elizabeth's story

Maria Elizabeth is married. She is originally from one of the municipalities in the north of the country, an area where there are a lot of businesses such as ranching and sale of raw gold, among other things. Maria owns a small stand in one of the municipal markets where she offers basic products such as rice, sugar, cooking oil, candy and groceries. She purchases her products from trucks that distribute basic grains and require immediate payment, and she makes cash sales. She is an entrepreneurial woman, with a great desire to succeed. She started her business on her own with savings from prior jobs. The purpose of this loan is to use as working capital to invest in purchasing home products, so she can offer a greater variety to her customers. One of her dreams is to see her business grow large, prosperous, and well stocked so it can make money and be more profitable.
