Mariaj's Group's story

Mariaj's Group has seven members: four women and three men. María is the president of this group. María is 47 years old and lives in Latacunga with her husband and four children who are 25, 22, 19 and 15. She describes herself as a person who is responsible with her household duties and very calm. María works together with her family raising animals (livestock) to sell. This is the first time that she has requested a loan from Fodemi and she will use the money to buy livestock to breed and raise. This will increase her sales and income and improve her family's quality of life. María's dream is to provide her children with an education.
