María Elizabeth's story

Maria is 50 years old and is a very enterprising woman. She has a great desire to help her family get ahead. After suffering the abandonment of her husband, this woman decided to put on the pants herself and to struggle for the well being of her four children. She began breeding, fattening and selling chicken and pigs, an activity which she continues with today and which generates the necessary income to educate and feed her children.

In order to grow within this sector, Maria is asking for this loan to invest in animal feed, pigs and to make repairs to her garage. Her greatest wish in life is the guarantee better opportunities for her family.
