Maria Paulina's story

María is 58 years old and has no children who depend on her.
For a number of years María has had a grocery store, where she sells fresh goods, chicken, juices, chips, detergents, basic grains, dairy products, soaps and meat. María's customers are friends and other regular customers. María is a poor and hard-working person who fights every day in order to help her family to get ahead. María owns her own house.
María is applying for this loan in order to buy corn, detergents, chicken, meat, cold meats and more for her business. With the support of this loan, María hopes to improve her quality of life.
María's dream is to improve her business and, as a result, make it more profitable.
