Maria is 33 years old. She is married and lives with her husband and four children who are unmarried. She lives in the Canton Ventanas river province.

The communal bank "V.R.C. El DIVINO NIÑO", which is located by Estero Lindo (part of Canton Ventanas), supports its members of short cycle farming like corn and rice. Maria is in the business of farming corn and rice in addition to raising livestock. She purchases and sells her products in Ventanas.
