Maria Dora
Maria has a business selling clothing and raising farm birds. She is a single mother and presently lives with her family -- her mother and her 3 children, ages 19, 15, and 8 -- two of whom are studying and the other is working.

Maria sells a variety of clothing, including pants, shirts, and blouses. She does this on the streets of her canton. She also carries out stock-breeding activities, such as raising and fattening pigs and chickens. She has done the latter for some 4 years. In addition, Maria sells snacks and does various tasks around the house.

This loan will be invested in purchasing more chickens in order to enlarge her farm and, also, to buy the chicken feed required. The loan will help Maria to expand her business, and that will improve their conditions of life, her own as well as her children's. One of the risks she could face is the possibility of illness among the chickens.

Maria's dream is to create a profitable business, helping her obtain more income and, thus, continue working to offer her children a good education and proper nourishment.
