María Sabina's story

María did not have the opportunity to attend school. She is widowed and lives with her daughter and three grandchildren.

María raises cattle, having learned this trade from her late husband. The land where her animals are kept is near her house and she works from 6:00 A.M. to 2:00 P.M.

María needs a loan to buy two heifers, vitamins, vaccines, and concentrated feed for optimal nutrition. She dreams of improving the conditions in her home.
