Maria Angelina
Angelina is the mother of 8 children; the youngest is one-and-a-half years old. Her husband’s a bricklayer in town which is near Guatemala’s capital. She weaves sashes and assures us that it’s been a very profitable business. In addition, it’s helped her keep her children in school. This is why she is asking for another loan. She promises to be punctual with all her payments because if the loan were granted it would be helpful to invest in yarn and fertilizer to plant corn and beans this season. It will also help her children continue studying to become successful people.
