Maria De Jesus
Maria de Jesús, together with her husband, dedicates herself to the agricultural activity of planting rice. Generally, they establish 5 months of rice annually. This allows her to help out the family which is comprised of one minor child and her husband Arnulfo Estrada who manages the crop on a daily basis. Through their partnership, she is accessing a project to build a rice thresher where the members will contribute 30% of the cost for the endeavor. In the La Peña community, where the members live, there is one of these intallations being built. Mrs. R. maintains the possibility of participating in this project and becoming a member of the thresher, for which she hopes that the requested loan is financed.
