María Julia
Maria is 61 years old. She went to school up until third grade. She wanted to be a professional, but in those days parents only wanted their children to learn how to work. She is a widow but has found someone to rebuild her life with. She has 6 children but only 4 live at home.

Maria makes a living in agriculture with her current life partner, but she also makes frozen juice drinks and sells other things for which she needs to have a refrigerator. She has been making a living doing this for two years now. One of her daughters works with her, and she sells from 6am to 7pm.

She needs the loan to buy a refrigerator, and she will buy a bag of manure which she needs to fertilize the crop.

Her dreams are for God to grant her a long life and for him to keep her children and her current life partner healthy. She dreams of one day having a general store to generate more income for her home and always have a means of support.
