Maríap's Group's story

Maríap's Group is made up of four women, and María is the president.

María is 49 years old and single, but she has five children. She lives in Pujilí, half an hour away from Latacunga. María considers herself to be a friendly and charismatic person. She likes talking with people, and is very cheerful.

María works raising livestock. She has been working with Fodemi for three years. The current loan that she is requesting is for the purchase of calves which she will raise and breed, providing good income with their future sale. In this way, she will be able to provide her children with an education.

Her dream is for her children to become professionals, and to have a large livestock business.

In this group: María, Celia, Rosa, María
