Maria Felix
Maria Felix is 56 years old and she does not have children that depend on her. She lives with her children and her husband in a house in the community of San Lorenzo in the southern part of Honduras. She has worked for 13 years in the activity of grinding corn.

Maria Felix wakes up early to grind corn of her neighbors that work in the sale of tortillas and tamales. She is a hard working woman and very humble. She has worked in this activity for years, with this mill she has been able to provide schooling for her daughters and help her family.

Maria is requesting a loan to purchase spare parts for the mill and to purchase zinc laminate for the roof of a shop for the mill.
