Maria Magdalena
Maria, age 68, started her business ten years ago. She decided to place a store at the entrance to her house in order to be able to generate income.

She continues with her food business, and she now works from 6:00 a.m. until 10:00 p.m. Her granddaughter, who lives close to her area, helps her. She does not have any difficulties, and she enjoys excellent health.

Maria has four children who are all adults, ages 47, 46, 45, and 42.
She will use the loan to buy rice, drinks, and canned goods.

One of her dreams is to have a place that is better suited for her business. This is because she only does business from the window of her house.
