Maria Eleuteria
Doña Eleuteria lives in “Tres Estrellas” (Three Stars), an indigenous community where most of the people engage in raising and fattening livestock. Several men from this community have migrated to the United States in search of work so that they can send money back to their families.


Doña Eluteria says she is requesting a loan to buy merchandise that she is lacking. She states, “I need eggs, bread, milk, salt, sugar, boxes of candy, and soft drinks. I want to buy a little bit of everything so that my store will be stocked with all types of merchandise.” One difficulty she faces with her business is that her sales are not always at the level that she wants, but she continues to press forward. She acquires her merchandise from a nearby town so that she does not have to travel far. With this loan, she plans to invest with the intention of earning enough to repay the loan and also have something left over for herself. Her goal is to succeed with her business since she receives no other assistance besides the loans.


Eluteria is 52 years old and has been married to her husband for thirty years. She has a total of seven children, but only one is a dependent who is in school. Her husband works as a mason and they live in their own home.
