A loan of $800 helped to buy a wide range of products to sell to her clients and improve her sales.


Maria Fernanda's story

Maria has a grocery store where she sells a large variety of food products, meat, liquor, sweets and other things.

The business belonged to her uncle but he had to give it up when he moved from the city and was unable to look after it any longer. She decided to take over and started to make better use of it, making it more productive.

At the moment, she believes that she needs to do something to improve her sales, so she is asking for a loan to be able to diversify the products she sells and offer more to her customers.

She has great expectations for her business and has worked very hard to make it profitable and well-known.

She dreams of making it a long-term success and always having a disposable income to provide an education and a better standard of living for her children.
