Maria's story

María is a member of the Llanpachik community bank. She is 44 years old, married, and has three children aged 18, 17 and 9. Her older children have just finished high school and want to go to San Cristóbal University in Ayacucho. Maria has had a lot of problems with her husband in the past. Now they get on much better and she feels more certain knowing that she has her own source of income and savings. María's dream is to buy a plot of land and to see her children become professionals.
