Maria's story

María is 56 years old and married to Orlando who works as a welder. Her children are all independent and live in the capital. María's work consists of the reinforcing of doors, windows and metal staircases. She has a storefront at the front of her house. She has been working in this sector for 8 years. She began this job because her partner needed someone to work for him painting the doors and windows he made. Because he was unable to find a helper, she decided to do it herself and, since then, they have worked together. She says that this job makes them a lot of money now that the city is beginning to grow and there are more construction areas that need their metal working services. The locations of the places that need them the most keep getting further from their home and so they need more mobility in order to move their work tools like their welding machine, the bar cutter and other tools. She wants to take this opportunity to ask for $475. She likes the group she is a member of because everyone knows one another and they are always ready to do what they need to in order to help each other out. With the loan, she will purchase materials like metal bars, aluminum sheets and other equipment that they need to do their work.
