María Lourdes's story

María Lourdes F. D. C. is 35 years old and lives in San Francisco Goteras, located in the Morazán department. She lives together with her 3 children - 16, 14 and 6 years of age, who all study. María has a bakery where she makes sweet bread and bread such as baguettes. The bakery is located in her own house, in an area where there is no competition, so owing to this she has many customers. María is a very hard-working woman who works hard every day to give her children everything they need. She is a single mother and for this reason must work very hard. María is seeking a loan with which to buy flour, honey, sugar, and all the ingredients necessary to make bread.
