María's story

Mrs. María is a 42 year old mother to four children and is married. She lives with her husband and three children of which only one is a minor. Mrs. María has been a member of the foundation for a while; she is a hardworker and is dedicated to her family. Her main work is milking the cows to sell the milk, and has the help of a daughter and her husband helps when he has free time since he is working elsewhere. Mrs. María has 4 dairy cows and four heifers; she only has one customer who makes cheese in the same neighborhood. Her goal is to increase her livestock inventory to grow her business, get ahead and live off her business, to make it a family affair. Mrs. María would like to have a big enterprise and new customers for her products; one of the obstacles that her business faces is the changing milk prices.
