Maria, 60, has had a small stall for selling cereals, cookies, and baked goods for 15 years. It is based in the market that is close to her home. She has many customers who come to her for her good prices and her friendliness when making a sale. WIth her earnings, she manages to cover some of the household costs. She lives in her own home with her husband. She has three children who are independent but she helps them economically. Maria is requesting a loan to buy more merchandise wholesale and to continue with their sales because that is her only source of work. She wants to be able to have a better life with her husband.
