Maritza's story

Maritza is 50 years old, is single and has no children who depend on her. She lives with her father. For the past 6 years she has been selling groceries, sweets, popsicles, tamales, meals and soup. She has her own house and her clients visit her to buy her products. With her last loan Maritza had a small store which she closed because her father was sick. Today she sells sweets and meals.

Maritza is requesting a loan to buy food products like plantains, potatoes, cheese, tortillas, chicken, rice, etc. as she wants to stock her business. With the help of the loan she hopes to improve her sales and make more profit. She is happy to continue working with Prisma with this 6th loan she has requested.
