Miriam Lizeth
Miriam Lizeth is 35 years old and a single mother of two daughters. She lives with them in the El Centro neighborhood in the town of Patuca. Miriam buys and sells cattle and her daughters go to school. Miriam started this cattle activity several years ago but she didn't do it alone, buy with other people who would contribute money to buy the cattle. Later she decided to go it on her own and she would buy cattle one by one until she had a good herd of cattle and was even able to buy her own truck to transport the cattle to be sold. She is asking for the loan to buy several cows and a bull. With the support of this loan, she hopes to obtain better earnings and keep supporting her daughters with their schooling and daily expenses. Miriam has been in FAMA for three cycles and has made her payments on time. Her goal is to be one of the best cattle ranchers in the area and in a few years have her own meat processing plant.

Miriam Lizeth tiene 35 años de edad y es madre soltera de dos hijas, y junto a ellas reside en el Barrio El Centro del Municipio de Patuca. Actualmente Mirian se dedica a la compra y venta de ganado y sus hijas a estudiar. Miriam inició a realizar la actividad de la ganaderia hace varios años atrás pero no lo hacia sola sino que con otras personas que en sociedad aportaban dinero para la compra del ganado. Luego de un tiempo decidió independizarse e iba comprando ganado de uno en uno, hasta que logró tener su buen hato ganadero y hasta compró su propio camión para transportar el ganado una vez que lo vende. Ella solicita el préstamo para comprar varias vacas y un toro. Con el apoyo de este prestamo espera obtener mejores ganancias y seguir apoyando a sus hijas con el estudio y con su sustento diario. Actualmente Miriam tiene tres ciclos en FAMA y ha pagado sus cuotas de manera puntual. Su meta es ser una de las mayores ganaderas de la region y con el transcurso de los años llegar a tener una planta procesadora de carnes.
