María Del Carmen's story

Maria only studied in school up to first grade. The financial situation of her parents was not very good. They had many children and they had to go to work. She has three children who emigrated to another country.

Maria sells fresh and dried fish in the city. She buys merchandise twice a week. She also makes tortillas to sell from her home. Maria needs a loan to buy maize and firewood to make and sell tortillas, and to buy dried and fresh fish to sell.

She has always dreamed that her children will one day return to see her and live with her in her last years. She wants to continue working to earn an income and to continue providing for herself.
