A loan of $1,500 helped buy rice, beans, oil, drinks, sorghum, candy, bread, soap, bleach, etc..


Maria Angelica's story

Mary is head of her household: she single-handedly has to meet the needs of her family. She is single and lives with her two children. As a way to generate revenue, she sells grains and several different staples - a trade she learned from her sister. Enjoying 14 years of experience, she works from seven in the morning to four in the afternoon. Her kids pitch in with the business.

The loan will help her buy merchandise such as rice, beans, oil, drinks, sorghum, candy, bread, soap, bleach, etc., to strengthen her sales. She hopes to upgrade the store's inventory and increase both sales and earnings, from which she will repay her loan.

Her dream is to improve her economic situation to change her family's lifestyle.
