Lourdes
View original language description ↓
Lourdes works tirelessly to give her two school age daughters a better life. She has always worked toward building a sustainable future. From a young age she has been involved in sales, and for the last 20 years she has sold fodder (animal feed) and alfalfa for farm animals such as Guinea pigs and rabbits, among others. She does this job together with her husband, working as a team. In the beginning, she worked as a reseller, purchasing lots of alfalfa and reselling them in the local market. Thanks to her enthusiasm and the advice of some friends, she was able to obtain an alfalfa field so that she could grow her own product. Her business has now grown in spite of the fact that in some respects the business does not offer the same profitability that it once did. Even so, Lourdes continues to work, as she has other goals that she wishes to attain for the good of her family. She would like to produce more alfalfa in order to increase sales. In order to begin her project she is asking for a $200 loan. Lets help her to continue her hard work without obstacles so that she may continue offering her best to her beloved family.

Lourdes trabaja incesantemente para brindarle un mejor futuro a sus dos pequeños hijos que están aún en edad escolar.Siempre ha trabajado para forjarse un futuro sostenible y es por esa razón que desde muy joven se dedica al comercio y hace veinte años específicamente a la venta de forraje o alfalfa para los animales de granja como cuyes y conejos entre otros.Esta actividad la realiza en compañía de su esposo con una mentalidad de trabajo de equipo, en un principio lo hacía como intermediaria, porque compraba por lotes la alfalfa para luego venderlas en el mercado local.Gracias al ánimo y consejo de una de sus amigas decidió adquirir un terreno de sembrío de alfalfa para comercializar lo que ella produce, en la actualidad su negocio ha crecido a pesar de que existen oportunidades en que el comercio ya no tiene el mismo auge de antes, aún así Lourdes seguirá trabajando porque quiere lograr otras cosas más por el bien de su familia.Quiere producir más alfalfa para incrementar sus ventas y con el objetivo de poner en marcha su proyecto solicita un préstamo de 200 dólares.Ayudémosla para que pueda seguir realizando su labor sin dificultades y siga brindándole lo mejor a su querida familia.
