María Josefa's story
María, 47 years old, went to school up to the third grade, is partnered, and her partner is a farmer. She has three daughters but only two still live in the house. María works grazing livestock and later selling them. She has been doing this work for more than 10 years. She learned the business with her partner. She has the livestock on a small plot of land at her house. Only her husband helps her with her business. The loan will be used to purchase two young goats to fatten them and later sell them. Her dream is to purchase a truck to carry the livestock and not have to pay for transportation.
