Maria De Jesus
Maria De Jesús, 38, has sold clothing and snacks for over 3 years now. She started because she didn't have enough capital and she was going through a difficult economic situation: she had two children to support.

She is a responsible woman, who enjoys her work very much, because she rises very early every day to go to the market to buy her snacks; she also has to do all the household chores.

She is asking for funds to buy merchandise. She dreams with providing each of her children with a proper education.
