Maria Azucena
Maria has been working with “Fundación León 2000” for a long time and this is not the first time she has gotten a loan. She’s been selling pork for more than six years and five years ago she began making other pork products. She also sells cosmetics. This has all been very satisfactory for her and her family. She will use the money from this loan to buy supplies and more hogs. She has to travel great distance to certain communities in order to get good prices. Maria wants to maintain this business as it is her only source of income.
