María
View original language description ↓
María T. G., 36 years old, lives in the Pacanal Uno hamlet. Her current occupation is agriculture (production of Maxan), which is considered a very productive activity and she dreams having larger harvests such as maxan, coffee and bananas. She is known in the community for her collaboration, participation and the work that she does. María is a person that will be able to, with her efforts, realize her dream of have more products. Previously, she worked doing domestic work to be able to work in the house and also traveled to the farms to pick coffee. She and her family suffered, especially in the winter, which is why she came up with the idea of becoming involved in the cultivation of maxan. However, she doesn't have the necessary capital to buy the maxan seeds and for the labor needed. To continue generating more income she saw the necessary to come to the offices of Asociación ASDIR to request a loan to be able to improve the living conditions of her family as well as to be able to generate sources of work.
