A loan of $600 helped buy cattle, sheep, chicken, and pigs.

Maria Dolores's story

María Dolores is a 34 year old single mother of one son, and they live in the city of Guaranda, in the province of Bolívar. She farms and raises livestock, and she makes her purchases and sales in Guaranda.

The VRC Mushuc Pakari cooperative is comprised of 10 members that do farming 40 minutes away from the office. María is asking for the loan to buy cattle, sheep, chickens, and pigs. With the help of this loan, she'll be able to improve her economic stability. Her dream is being able to buy herself a house with a garden. The challenges she faces are competition and bad climate.

María likes to spend her free time with her family. She is very grateful for the previous loan.
