Maria Magdalena
Maria, 18, owns a house where she lives with her husband and son. She has worked hard to be a model homemaker, supporting her husband and taking care of her family, ensuring that they never go without their daily bread. Maria has a farming business. She grows basic grains: maize and beans, along with loroco and jocote. She gets up every morning, urged on by the desire to get ahead, and spends her day taking care of her crop. She harvests part of the crop for sale and part of it for her own use. Maria is applying for an INTEGRAL loan that she will use to buy supplies for her business: seeds, manure, fertilizer, pesticides, etc. The investment will allow her to provide her family with a better quality of life.
