Maria Santiaga
María is a very enterprising person who works a lot. She lives with her life partner and their four children, aged 9, 14, 18 and 19. They all depend on her. They have no family members living abroad. Maria makes and sells tortillas and also raises chickens, which she learned how to do two years ago, out of economic necessity. She starts to work at 6am and continues until 3pm. She has the advantage of selling the tortillas every day from a stand that is convenient for her customers.
María is asking for this loan to buy raw materials like corn, wood and concentrated chicken feed. This investment will help her to increase her income and improve their living standard. The problem with the tortillas is that if they do not sell quickly they can go bad and for the animals it is potential epidemics. Her dream is to continue working in order to create more income and offer her family a higher quality of life.
