Maria's story

María Báez is 30 years old and has been separated for six years, had been married for three years. She has no children and since the separation began delivering merchandise. She went outside the country to work for one year then returned when her brother died.

Upon her return, she used her money to continue her business but from a fixed location: at the corner of the municipal market. She began to have a good customer base because of the variety of fruits, vegetables, staple goods, candies, soft drinks she carries and above all the personalized attention she offers her customers.

She is asking for a loan to buy oranges, tomatos, carrots, flour, rice, herbs, oil, cold cuts, cheese and candies in general and thus offer a large variety in order to satisfy her customers' demands.
