María Consuelo
María is 52 years old, is married and has 2 children. She has 20 years of experience in raising and selling livestock. Along with her husband she learned the profession due to a situation of unemployment and her low level of education. They found that raising and fattening young cows was their only source of income to keep the family sustained.

She travels in a truck from her home to the place where the livestock is bought, which is a small market an hour away. Later the cows are chosen and bought and they return to the house. The trip lasts one hour each way.

With the investment, she is certain that she can continue with her business now that she will sell the animals and receive an income for her family.
