Maria Rosa
Señora Maria is 58 years old. She has her own home in Sacaba. She has two children who are independent and are married. Señora Maria makes empanadas in her home two times a week since the salary she receives as a teacher is not sufficient for her to support herself. She sells them on the market days in Sacaba, Thursday and Sunday. She only makes empanadas twice a week because she has a second professional job as a preschool teacher. The loan that she is applying for is for the purchase of quantities of ingredients such as flour and sugar, because at this time the prices of these products are beginning to go up. Sra. Maria is a very hard-working person and is grateful for the opportunity that is offered to her.
