Maria's story

Maria belongs to the El Roble communal bank, and during her time as a member, she has learned to save money. Maria is married and has nine children, all adults now. Maria is now responsible for two grandchildren who study, and she hopes they become professionals. Maria sells fruits, chicha [a traditional beverage], and drinks from the doorway of her house, an activity which she does everyday. She asks for a loan of 1000 soles to buy a variety of drinks.
