María Auxiliadora is 65 years old. Since she was very young, she has worked as a farmer on her own land. At the beginning, she had difficulties with her loans, but she succeeded in overcoming those obstacles and has demonstrated compliance with all of her payments. Her husband works as a bus driver. Her children are adults who help financially support her basic expenses.
She is requesting a sixth loan to purchase urea, insecticide, and fertilizer to maintain her pineapple crop. Her dream is to be able to plant other plots to generate more income and rest a little, since at her age working in the field is very tiring.
