Maria Isabel's story

Señora Maria devotes her time to making and selling yogurt. Her husband works as an employee in a large company. They live in their own house in an area called "El Recreo del Plan 3000". They have 5 children at primary school. To help sustain her household, Maria sells the yogurt she makes every day and distributes it throughout the Recreo district, through shops that know her products well. She leaves very early in the mornings to buy the milk at the dairies near her home, and makes it into 10 or 20 litres of yogurt each day for later distribution. Because she works from home, she makes the most of this to look after the needs of her family. Her dream is to be able to buy machines to make her yogurt in large quantities. Already she is also packaging the yogurt in little bags for sale as frozen yogurt / icecream. They now need the finance to build a separate room for making the yogurt, as they need more space. She and her husband are responsible people who are always ready to work late to fill all their orders.
