A loan of $1,000 helped to buy a heifer to fatten and make a good profit when she sells it.


Karina Elizabeth's story

Karina is 29 years old and studied up to 9th grade. She is in a relationship and her partner works as a bricklayer. They have 2 children. Karina looks after the domestic tasks, but this year she wants to buy a heifer, as she has enough space at her home to look after one.

The loan will be used to buy a heifer to fatten and make a good profit when she sells it. By doing this she will be able to help her partner with the household expenses.

Karina dreams of having a lot of cattle to work with so she can contribute towards providing better living conditions for her family.
