A loan of $1,625 helped to renovate her store and buy display cases, shelving units, and natural products.


Maria Camila's story

Maria learned from the great advice of her mother to always be enterprising and to make her own money. Therefore, when she was very young she started a health food store offering body care products and 100% natural herbal medicines.

She is asking for a loan to invest in her business that has been affected by the difficult competition in the area. She has seen that on many occasions customers get caught up in the look of the store, and therefore the loan will be invested in renovations, and the purchase of display cases, shelving units, and products that can't be found in other stores that offer similar products. Her dream is to be the best health food store in Puerto Bocaya and to be able to employ many people and do her part to lower to unemployment rate in the area.
