Deisy Abigail
Deysi, age 63, is married and has four children. She has been selling little cheeses from butter and cream since she was 15 years old. She now has 47 years of experience in this business activity. She learned this trade when she was with her parents. She says that this business activity is a family legacy. She and her sisters do the same thing, and she says that she will always continue doing it as long as God gives her life. This is the way she gets her family ahead.

She does not buy the supplies for her production because her family has always had cows. What she does is process the milk she gets from the cows in order to make her sales at the market. In order to get there Deysi needs to walk on foot for 35 minutes from her house to a turnoff where she boards a bus. She rides for 15 minutes until she gets to another turnoff. Finally, she walks on foot for ten minutes to get to the market.

The loan that Deysi is requesting is to buy two cows. The sales she is making are pretty large, and she only has three dairy cows. Their milk is insufficient. With the loan she will increase her milk production, improve her family’s quality of life, and get greater income. This way she will provide everything that is needed in her house in order to survive. She will save her earnings for whatever malady presents itself.
