Maura
Maura is fifty-five years old, and at this time in her life, she is working independently with the faithful company of her four children. She owns a house made of wood and hopes to rebuild it with better material in the future. She has made a living for more than fourteen years in cacao production. She has always been a fighting woman, and she carries out her work on some plots of land that she acquired with the help of her parents more than twenty years ago. She constantly receives the support of her children and, if necessary, she hires additional help that the day laborers in her area offer.

She thinks that working with cacao has always been her hobby since her parents and grandparents also worked with it. The drying process of the cacao grains is a bit complicated since the zone where her plots are located is suffering from constant rain, causing her to spend more than the normal amount of time drying the seeds.

Considering the needs and attention that her crops require, it is necessary for her to count on a considerable number of day laborers to do all the weeding of the cacao trees. At this time, the weeds are taking over the branches and fruits, damaging their normal growth. In addition to the laborers, she hopes to count on the sacks of organic fertilizer and necessary tools for the comprehensive maintenance of her plots.

She has taken out twelve loans to date, always promising to pay on time, and she is thankful for the confidence she has received. With the 2,000 she will be able to hire day laborers for the weeding work and for putting the fertilizer on the cacao plants. She will also buy sacks of indispensable organic fertilizer in order to guarantee the good quality of her fruits.
