Maria is a woman of great values given to her by her parents, such as honesty, humility, and respect for work, with which she is defined well. She is an example for her three children who love and respect her.

She is asking for a loan through Fodemi and will use the money to buy fabric and thread to make artistic embroideries in cloth. This is very demanding work and she does it with lots of love, knowing that each day she can bring home the bacon.

Maria’s dream is to export her embroideries in clothing to other nations. Maria is certain that she will achieve it through her work and with this income be able to provide for her children’s education.
