Maria is 34 years old. She is married and has 4 children. Maria lives with her spouse and children in the city of Guaranda in the Bolivar Province. The VRC Tagma Rumiñahui, located almost 25 minutes from the San Simón office, focuses on agriculture and cattle ranching. Maria works in agriculture, growing corn and potatoes, as well as raising and selling pigs and cattle. Maria is requesting the loan to buy pigs, seeds, fertilizers, urea, and weed killer. With the help of the loan, Maria is going to buy more animals and improve her fields. She does her shopping every 15 days in the city of Guaranda. Her dream is to have her own vehicle and buy land. In her free time, Maria likes to go out walking and go to parties because she likes to dance.
