María Marta
María is 48 and never went to school. Her daughters taught her how to read and sign her name. She takes care of the household while her husband is a small fisherman. She sells the catch (fish or shellfish) at the town market. This is their sole source of income. María is a skilled fishmonger, since she has been in this trade for several years. Thanks to this, her daughters were able to go to school and now have no problems taking care of themselves, since they both live with their respective partners, although close to their parents' house. Her husband's fishing business, and, thus, her sales, depend on the tide. She asks Credicampo for a loan in order to buy replacement parts for the fishing boat's engine and have it repaired. María's dream is to improve her house, which is currently made out of metal sheets, and she also wants her husband to have a working fishing boat and decent implements to help him bring in more catch.
