Maria Beatriz's story
Maria is a very hardworking woman who makes a living raising livestock and working in the country together with her husband. She has 6 children of which just one is a girl and two grandchildren who live with her. Maria says that life in the country is not easy and that in order to take care of her cows they have to leave the house at 4 in the morning, and from there they must return soon in order to start the workday at 7 in the morning. She will invest the loan in the purchase of a cow to improve her business and help her daughter who is a single mother.
