Mary Luz
Mary Luz is 25 years old. She is married to Jhony. They have two small daughters and she is pregnant with their third child. Both are very hard working and responsible. Thanks to their efforts, they have managed to buy a small piece of land where they have built a small house where they live comfortably since previously they lived in only one room in their parents' house. Mary Luz is dedicated to the production of raw milk for which she has dairy cattle. She distributes the product to her regular customers. She does all of the work milking and collecting fodder alone because her husband works for the police and on his free days he helps her with collecting fodder. The loan is destined to buy fodder. This will help them combat the dry season that is approaching. Among their dreams is to build more rooms for their three children and, in this way, to be able to provide them with a better quality of life.
