Maria Casilda's story

Maria is a member of the New Era Community Bank. She is married, 57 years old and has two children. She buys grains from different fairs and towns, and markets them in the Las Américas market, which she does every day. She needs a loan of $875, which will be invested in the purchase of corn, wheat, and barley. Maria's dreams are to improve her business and establish her own stand.
