María Jesus
María Jesus is married to Don Lorenzo. They have six children. María raises pigs, chickens, and a goat and then sells her animals every fifteen days at the town fair. She has a specific place for selling animals on Sundays and Thursdays. With her earnings she also takes advantage of the opportunity to buy smaller animals to raise so that she can sell them within a month’s time, more or less.

María is requesting a loan to continue with her animal business. In addition to selling animals, she also embroiders traditional blouses. She thanks FAPE and Kiva for the support they have provided. Her dream is to have a large farm.
