Maria's story

Maria is 21 years old, single, and lives alone. She is engaged in the mobile sale of chicharron - this rich dish is prepared using pork and regional products. She sells it in the Plaza de Armas in the Cabana District, which is centrally located. Her sales are very good, so Maria feels very optomistic about improving her business. She has always liked to cook and she believes with her flavors she delights the palates of all of her regular customers. The most difficult thing is acquiring pork, as prices are increasing, which affects her business. This is Maria's first loan with Microfinanzas Prisma. With the money requested, she wants to buy more pork to cook a larger quantity of dishes and moreover to buy benches to be able to offer greater comfort to her customers.
