Maria is an energetic little girl. She loves playing with her friends. She's very quick to make friends. This is also a reason why she loves going to school so much. However, it is getting quite difficult for her parents to bear her education costs along with other expenses. Maria's father is currently working with the Army on a project but his income is very low. Also, as it is a project, he'll be unemployed once it is over. It is very difficult for them to maintain their family on Maria's father's income alone. Unless he can get a more permanent earning source, their problems won't end. They are worried that these problems are affecting Maria. They want her to study for as long as she can but without a proper earning source it might not be possible. If she could get a sponsorship, it would really help them to keep her in school for long and get her the proper education for a better future.
