Maria Yamileth's story

Maria Yamileth is 33 years old and she lives in the El Relleno Amapala community. She sells everyday products, and she runs a corner shop which is set in her house.
Every day, before opening her corner shop, Maria prepares tortillas that she then sends to a shrimp plant: these are tortillas she makes for order and she prepares every day.
Maria lives with her two children and her husband.
The loan she is requesting will be used to buy groceries, as she wants to stock up her shop.

Her personal desire is to be healthy and for peace and love to reign in her house.
