María is a 50 year woman, very hard working, and who 8 years ago, from the moment of her separation, was obligated to look for a source of income for her and her two children. For this she worked in the sale of catalog merchandise and special order clothing sales. She hopes to invest the loan in the purchase of more merchandise like accessories, perfume, clothes, cosmetics, and other products with the goal of having a good selection for holy week. She dreams of having a corner store and her own house in addition to increasing her income and improving her quality of life.
