Elisa, age 23, is married and has one child. She has been raising cows for ten years. She learned from her father, a rancher. She buys the livestock at the nearest market places, which are 20 kilometers from her house.
The loan that she is requesting from the Fundación Campo is to buy two dairy cows. She will also buy medicine for her sick mother-in-law. She will help to improve her mother-in-law’s health with this investment . She will also be able to produce more milk. This will allow her to process the milk and to sell dairy products and the cows. This will generate better income for her in order to feed her family. She will also be able to buy a piece of land in order to build her own house.
Elisa tiene 23 años de edad, es casado y tiene un hijo. Desde hace 10 años se dedica a la crianza de vacas; lo aprendió de su padre que es ganadero. El ganado lo compra en las plazas más cercanas a unos veinte kilómetros de su casa.
El préstamo que esta solicitando a Fundación Campo, es para comprar dos vacas lecheras y comprar medicina para la enfermedad de su suegra. Con la inversión ayudara a mejorar la salud de su suegra y podrá producir más leche que le permitirá procesarla para vender lácteos y también las vacas. Lo que le generara un mejor ingreso para la alimentación de su familia y poder comprar un terreno para construir su propia casa.
