María Elena's story

Maria, age 44, is a housewife who studied until the 3rd grade. She couldn’t continue her studies due to the lack of resources. She has a life companion and is a mother of 4 children, ages 25, 22, 20 and 13. The youngest is still studying, and the other three work.

Her life companion works as a driver. María has worked at her own store for the last 12 years. This is an activity that she learned gradually from her mother.

The loan she is requesting from CREDICAMPO will be used to supply her store. She will buy eggs, sugar, cold meats, cookies, sardines, dairy, beverages, etc. With this, she will have more products to satisfy her clients’ needs.

María’s dream is to establish a minimarket, see her son become a professional and improver her house.
