View original language description ↓
Noemí is used to the hard labor required of working in the countrysiD.. She is also a person with much experience raising livestock, knowing how to care for them to later make a good profit. Several years ago, she decided to abandon farming in its entirety because unpredictable weather was destroying her harvests. She then began concentrating more on livestock, although she still grows a few items such as corn, potatoes and wheat. She has been in business doing this noble labor for over thirty years, and it allowed her to proviD. for all her childrens’ needs. Each day, Noemí rises early to clean her stable and take her cattle out to the pasture to graze. What she needs now is to buy nutritionally-balanced feed for her livestock, and to prepare her land for planting seeds. It is for these reasons that she is requesting this loan.

Translated from Spanish by Mary Lynn, Kiva Volunteer.
