Maria
María is 45 years old. Her husband of seven years is Marco and they have three children: Celeste, Valeria, and Matías. She owns her home, which is located in the town of Ataura.


Two months ago, María opened a grocery store at her father’s house. There she sells all types of vegetables, beverages, breads, and other food products. She had a store eight years ago, but she was forced to close it due to a lack of capital. Now she works harder each day and has had great success. In addition, she raises guinea pigs and chickens. María currently has 70 animals that she will sell in order to pay for her children’s studies. “I save money by growing the food that the animals will eat, so I don’t have to pay for that expense,” she says. On the weekends, she takes advantage of the reception her store has gained by selling hamburgers and French fries. She hopes to consolidate her business and improve her earnings.


María belongs to the Communal Bank “Nuevo Amanecer” (New Dawn) and this is her fourth loan with MFP. She enjoys working with her group because the members are responsible and always support one another at each meeting. For this reason, María promises to be punctual with her payments. The money she requested will be invested in the purchase of basic necessities such as sugar, rice, noodles, milk, and other items so that she can restock her grocery store.
