María Santos's story
Maria is 34 years old and she is a hard-working woman that works in a small bakery. She lives with her 15 year-old son and her husband, and together they pay the household expenses. Maria has worked for 5 years in the bread-making business, an activity that she learned when she attended workshops about productive activities. Later, she developed into the role of mother of her family and she hopes for another child. She now is 4 months pregnant. With this loan, she will get the help she needs to pay off some of her debts to other creditors. She wants to help her family and thanks to this loan, she will have more money available to provide a better life for her son and the next child that's on the way. Maria dreams about a near future in which she improves her home, since it is in bad condition, and she wants to provide her children with better living conditions.
