A loan of $1,500 helped to buy cabbage, carrots, grapes, mangoes, oranges, sapotas, potatoes, onions and more.


Maria Consuelo's story

María lives with her husband and two children, aged 14 and 11 years old respectively. In order to support her husband with household costs, María started to work sell fruits and vegetables and, over time, the business has grown. María is supported by her children after school. María works from 6 a.m. until 6 p.m. and has had no problems so far.

María needs capital in order to buy cabbage, carrots, grapes, mangoes, oranges, sapotas, potatoes, onions and other fresh products to stock up her business and sell to her customers.

María's dream is to continue working in order to support her children in their studies, and for her children to forge a better future for themselves.
