She says that she has 2 cows, from whom she quickly began to supply milk. Addition she has pigs. She stays strong in this desire and already wants to quickly acquire more animals. Meanwhile she works as a hard laborer on other farms. She says she does it 2-3 times a week. She like very much to cultive the crops and pull weeds growing between the rows, that it makes her feel peaceful. Also her husband is a masonry, for now he is only an apprentice, but very soon he wants to learn very quickly in order to be a mason and not an apprentice. He knows that he will get it, so these desire of improvement make them stay firm and so that step by step they achieve their objectives. Additionally she promises to pay her payments punctually, as she is a caring and responsible person. María, from receiving your support, will invest the funds requested in the purchase of roofing, windows and doors, where she will be able to build a stable for her animals.
