Maria Catalina's story

Maria is 65 years old and is a homemaker. She didn’t go to school due to a lack of financial resources. She is a widow and has 7 children. They are all grown and supporting themselves. Currently she lives only with 4 grandchildren. Maria works selling tortillas from a friend’s home. She decided to do this work because of her need to help her children get ahead. She also works with livestock, which she buys and sells over a period of time, in order to earn more income and have good nutrition for herself and her grandchildren. Maria is seeking this loan to buy livestock to fatten and sell in a year. Maria’s dream is to buy an ample home, so that her grandchildren can live in better conditions.
