A loan helped to buy more vegetables to sell.

María Rosa's story

Maria attended school until the ninth grade. She is in a relationship, and her partner makes a living from agriculture. She has four children, two of which are dependent on her.

Maria has been selling vegetables for four years, a business activity she learned through a project of a mayor's office. She works eighteen kilometers from where she lives. She works from Monday to Friday from 7:00 am to 3:00 pm. In addition, she raises goats.

Maria will use the loan to buy more vegetables to sell. She wants to increase her sales and help her children to become professionals.
