María Ines
María is a founding member of the Vegaspamba communal bank. She lives in a well-known part of the Jadan parish. The area is surrounded by lush vegetation. Its people devote themselves to crafts; they make ropes. They also devote themselves to agriculture and raising animals.

María, age 61, is married, and she and her husband have nine children. All of her children are grown, married, and live independently. Her husband is a farmer, and she lives in her own house.

María devotes herself to the household chores. As she lives in the countryside that works in farming, she sells her harvests. Her harvests are also for her household’s consumption. She raises and sells guinea pigs, pigs, sheep, and livestock. When she was a very young girl she learned how to make ropes from her parents. This allows her to have an extra income at home.

She will use the new loan to buy cord to make the ropes, natural fertilizer for her crops, guinea pigs, and pigs.

Her goal is to get her whole family ahead.
