Maria
Maria is 43 years old and lives with her husband and 4 children. For over 12 years she has raised sheep. Every day she tends to her animals so that they can fatten, allowing her to later sell the meat at the local market. At this time she is seeing the profits of her hard work, which demands daily attention. The income from her job contributes to household expenses, and it has also helped her get through difficult times.
Maria makes a great sacrifice so that her children can continue to succeed in school. She asks for a loan to purchase well-balanced nourishment for her animals, and with the profits hopes to continue to support her children and meet scholastic expenses.
