A loan of $1,500 helped to buy vegetables.

Maria Del Carmen's story

María is a happy and plucky woman. She is married and has four children: the eldest is married and her youngest two daughters are in primary school. María's second child was studying at high school but could not continue due to a lack of money to pay for it. María makes a living selling items such as vegetables and grains in the city's nearby markets. Her husband is a builder. María will invest this loan in buying goods to sell at the market. María wants to have enough money to provide her daughters with an education. In the future she would like to buy a small house as the family currently lives in a rented house.
