Maria Saturnina
Maria is 49 years old and lives with her two granddaughters at her home in a neighborhood of San Lorenzo, located in southern Honduras.

Maria is asking for this loan in order to buy construction materials such as cement, bricks, gravel, nails, etc. She wants to put a roof over her sink and bathroom. She just finished putting these in but the money that she had wasn’t enough to buy everything she needed. Maria’s dream is to be able to have a big store.
