Maria Jesus
40-year old Maria is married and has three children who are students. Maria is a biologist by profession, but she stopped this line of work to bring up her children. In her free time she sells cosmetics to her friends and relatives from a catalog, and in this way she earns money for her family. Four months ago she contacted the Community Bank and is now saving money to start up a laboratory. Her greatest wish is for her children to continue their studies and get good jobs.

Maria needs a loan of 2000 soles to buy perfumes, lotions, and a door for her recently-constructed house.
