Maura is 36 years old and belongs to the group Progresivo, which is made up of 15 members and is led by Maura. Her group is currently going through the 31st cycle and is considered very enterprising and united.

Maura has two children, ages 17 and 12. She has always sought their well-being and to improve their quality of life. She is both mother and father.

More than 17 years ago, she initiated the improvement of her cacao crop. She is now requesting a loan for the maintenance of her parcel of cacao. She wants to obtain a better product and offer quality to her associates.

In addition, she works as a day laborer, and she continues saving within her group so that she can save for her children’s education. Her biggest dreams are that her children achieve becoming professionals, to have diversified products from the area, and to have better income from her harvests.
