María Magdalena's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!


A loan helped to buy reeds to make sleeping mats to sell, and to pay rent on the land where she grows corn and sorghum.


María Magdalena's story

María attended the school in her community through the fourth grade. She is married, and her husband works in agriculture. She has three young children who are not yet in school.

María's primary job is making sleeping mats and baskets to sell. She learned this job from her mother. She also works in agriculture, growing corn and sorghum. She does this job with her life partner.

She will use the loan to buy reeds to make sleeping mats to sell. She will also pay rent on the land where she grows corn and sorghum. María's dream is to have a brick house, and to provide an education to her children.
