María currently works as a farmer and she has done so since she was a child. She learned from her parents because they made a living working in the fields. In addition to agriculture, she also raises free range hens, which generate additional income. She does not have a work schedule since she does not rest until she has finished what she has to do.
The money from the loan will be used to cultivate corn. In addition, she will buy two plots of land that she will use to farm.
María’s dreams are: to be able to help her children achieve everything within their reach and to own a decent house. She is sure that with help from God and the loans she will be able to make it possible.
María actualmente trabaja en la agricultura y lo ha hecho desde que era niña, lo aprendió de sus padres pues ellos se dedicaban a trabajar en el campo, además de la agricultura se dedica a la crianza de gallinas indias, lo que le genera un ingreso adicional; horario de trabajo no tiene pues hasta que termina de hacer lo que tiene programado descansa.
El dinero del préstamo será utilizado para la siembra de maíz, además comprara 2 terrenos los cuales le servirán para el trabajo en la agricultura.
Los sueños de María son: Poder ayudar a sus hijos en todo lo que este a su alcance, tener una vivienda digna, está segura que con la ayuda de Dios y los créditos lo podrá hacer posible.
More information about this loan
