María
Maria is highly admired because of her Christian values instilled in her by her parents. Honesty and respect for work, are qualities that define her well. She is an example for her five children. Maria is 61 years old and works with the same enthusiasm and joy as she had when she started many years ago. It is these attitudes and entrepreneurial feelings that have made Maria an example for her entire community.

Maria has been working with Fodemi for 12 years and she is asking for this loan to buy merchandise such as blankets, sheets, eiderdowns, and men’s, women’s, and children’s clothing, etc. She sells from her home and works every day to be able to help her household finances.

Maria wants to buy herself a shop in the Ibarra city center so that she can sell merchandise from there. She is certain that her work and effort will allow her to do this, especially because her children encourage and help her make her dream a reality.
