A Bit About Maria Esther Zamora

Maria Esther Zamora, her husband and three children, ages 12, seven and three, all live with her mother-in-law in Barrio Santa María, San Mateo Ateneo, Mexico. For several years, Maria sold cosmetics and costumes to supplement the income her husband brought in from his job at a local maquila, or assembly plant. But Maria found that the competition for the types of goods she sold was high and her profits were low, so she decided to go in a new direction, and opened a small business selling food supplements. About a year ago, joined a local FINCA Village Banking group called Cometas, which means to be committed. She used her first loan to purchase the food supplements she needed to start her business, and is now in her third loan cycle. She says she is extremely grateful to her fellow group members for being so supportive of her in her new business venture. Maria says that while her investment is in her business, the profits she makes are being invested in her family, especially in her children’s educations, and that makes her feel powerful.
