A loan of $1,000 helped to buy coffee and sweet bread wholesale.


Maria Del Carmen's story

Maria, age 47, lives in a relative’s house with her children. She sells coffee with sweet bread. She does this in an itinerant manner at the different markets that are close to where she lives. She has a lot of customers because the product is very marketable. With what she gets from her sales, and with the help of her oldest son, they manage to pay for some of the household expenses.

Maria is requesting a loan to buy coffee and sweet bread wholesale in order to continue with her sales. This is her only source of work. This way she will be able to have a better quality of life together with her children.
