A loan of $400 helped to pay off debts with other institutions.


María Santana's story

María is 50 years old and studied for a health diploma. She is in a relationship with her life companion, who is also employed, and they have three children. One of her daughters lives in the United States. María works as a health promoter in the community where she lives. She has been at this job for 21 years. María was chosen for this job by members of her community and learned how to perform her duties through training seminars.

Her loan will be invested in the repayment of debts with other institutions. Her dreams include continuing to work so that her children can have a better future. The income she earns will be invested in her home, as well as the health care and education costs for her children.
