Maria Ines's story

María is 26 years old, and she lives with her parents. She is a single mother, and she has a two year old son. She helps her parents work by doing agricultural work. She has been doing this business activity with her father for four years. She works from 6:00 a.m. until 12:00 noon on Mondays through Saturdays.

She is requesting a loan to rent three ‘manzanas’ [a manzana is a land measurement unit equivalent to 7000 square meters] of land. With this she will be ensuring the sowing in order to start the work in the coming year. The objective of the loan is so that Maria has a secure place to plant with her father. It will help her to continue working with her family.
