A loan of $1,150 helped working capital.


Maria De Jesus's story

María de Jesús Gonzales F. is 32 years old, single, and has no children. Maria works selling general merchandise. She has earned her living this way for the past 10 years and she also gets some help from her mother since she doesn’t have time for her two jobs—she also works as a schoolteacher. Maria would like to make improvements to her business since for the most part it is her mother who attends to the store. Because of this she is asking for a loan with the idea of investing it in merchandise like clothing, shoes and cosmetics. She hopes to eventually have 2 locations in order to satisfy the demand of her customers. She is asking for C$ 23.000 córdobas to be repaid in 18 months.
