María Magdalena's story

María, 43, is married with children. She lives with her beautiful family in a community of the village of Chocolá.

To earn income, she has a business buying and selling traditional clothing in one of the main streets of her community. She has had this business for 11 years. To improve her income, she also works grafting coffee plants.

María is requesting a loan to strengthen her business and offer a variety of products. She will use the loan to buy more typical clothing such as güipiles [a traditional tunic or blouse], fajas [a woven belt or sash], and cortes [a traditional Mayan women's skirt].
