Maria Dolores
María is 50 years old. She lives together with her daughter and a young granddaughter. She earns her living by selling dairy products like cream, cheese, and "requesón" [a creamier Latin American version of ricotta]. Her stall is located in the municipal market in her town, and she has several weekly buyers of her products.

María is requesting a loan with which she will be able to buy more dairy products like requesón, cream, and more types of cheese, since her business is very good and stable. This will provide her with very good earnings, which is why she wants to grow her business more.

María wishes to improve herself as a businesswoman and thereby provide her daughter with a better life in which she has everything she needs to have a respectable life.
