Maria Mirian's story

María is a 63-year old woman who lives in her own house with her family. She makes a living selling "tamales" (pasties made of corn) and "pupusas" (stuffed tortillas). She is very hardworking and responsible, and is always looking to provide for her family.

She now wants to make improvements to her house and put ceramic floors that will keep the house cleaner. However, given that her income is not enough to cover the expenses that this would entail, she is requesting a loan to buy ceramic, cement and sand, and to cover labor costs.
