María Santos's story

Maria is 52 years old, studied until the ninth grade, and is a married woman; her husband works in agriculture. She wakes up at 4:30 a.m. with her husband to carry out the daily activities. Maria works in agriculture, a trade which her husband taught her; during the morning they work in the land plots. She walks 2 km to get there. During the afternoon they milk the cows to sell the milk. These activities are done both by Maria and her husband. They are requesting the loan to buy two dairy cows, in order to produce more milk to sell and thus increase their income. In the future, Maria plans to buy land that is currently rented for her animals to graze with the income that she obtains from selling the milk.
