Mariateresa's story

María Teresa is 34 years old and has three children in her care who are all studying in the local school. Maria Teresa is a single mother because her husband left her for another, much younger, woman. Her ex-husband doesn't provide them with maintenance.

María Teresa and her family live in a very basic house which isn't in particularly habitable conditions. She would like to improve her way of life and, for this reason, she is requesting a loan to increase her dairy herd which provide her with income through the milk that they produce. María Teresa works hard in her business. She needs to increase her income by buying another cow.
