Maria Elsa
Maria Elsa, a 55-year old married lady who describes herself as hard worker with very high values. She learned the farming trade when she was ten-years old and worked alongside her parents, who taught her everything she knows. She now works with her husband and, although they've been doing ok so far, she needs a loan in order to purchase a new cow. She expects that this will raise milk production in the farm, which would hopefully lead to an increase in her family's income. In five years she would like to expand her business and to also begin raising chickens.
