Elena
My name is Elena Garcia, I am from the San Francisco community, and am 31 years old. I have been in a common law relationship for the last 10 years. Recently we finished building our own house since we had previously been living in my parent's home. The four children that I have go to elementary school and there are many expenses because the teachers constantly ask for things that the children need to bring to school. I make a living by raising sheep. I am asking for the loan to be able to buy sheep and be able to raise them. Taking care of the animals is simple for me because I have a corral and I leave them there and only take food and water for them to eat and drink. The corral has a roof and this way they are protected from the weather. I hope that when it comes time to sell them they will fetch a good price. Many times when people see that one is in a hurry to sell the animals, they take advantage and want to buy them cheaper and I don't make the profit that I should make. My wishes are to purchase the things that I still need for my house in order to live better.

Mi nombre es Elena G., soy de la comunidad de San Francisco, tengo 31 años de edad, vivo en union libre desde hace 10 años, hace poco terminamos de hacer nuestra casa porque anteriormente vivia en casa de mis padres, los cuatro hijos que tengo van a la escuela primaria y son muchos los gastos que hay porque los maestros a cada rato nos piden cosas para que los niños las lleven, el negocio que tengo es la cria de borregos, yo pedi el prestamo para comprar borregos y poderlos criar, no se me hace muy dificil cuidar los animales es muy sencillo para mi porque como tengo un corral ahi los echo y solo les llevo su comida y agua para que tomen, el corral esta techado entonces se protegen los cambios de clima que pueda haber, yo espero que cuando sea tiempo de venderlos me los paquen bien, muchas veces la gente como ve que uno tiene apuros para vender los animales se encajan y los quieren pagar barato y de esa forma ya no tengo las ganancias que deberia de tener. Mis deseos son comprar las cosas que hacen falta en la casa para poder vivir mejor.
