View original language description ↓
Estrella is very hard-working with a wish to improve; she is a mother of 2 children, 10 and 13 years old. Since she was a girl she has raised cattle for a living, obtaining the necessary income; she buys, fattens and sells her cattle at an increased price, this is the routine of her work. She is also an excellent farmer, she grows corn, barley, wheat, and “quinua” and at the harvest season she herself sells her products at the local market. Estrella is a single mother, the only support of her children. On this occasion she requests a loan to be invested in the purchase of a bull.
