Vicenta
Vicenta is 40 years old and lives with her husband and 6 children. Until recently, she worked offering her efforts to the hard work of a brick factory, but she decided to start her own busines so that she could arrange her own schedule and attend to her children. About 6 months ago, she bought a cow that she raised and then sold to obtain funds to purchase pigs that she could sell at a higher price. Additionally, she has bought guinea pigs and is now increasing the size of the litter. These advancements encourage her to continue working this way and to get up every morning to cut the grass to feed her animals. Vicenta works because she wants her children to have a good education. She is requesting this loan to invest in the purchase of more cattle to subsequently resell.

Vicenta tiene 40 años, vive con su esposo y sus 6 hijos. Anteriormente trabajaba ofertando su fuerza de trabajo en las duras tareas de una fábrica de ladrillos, pero decidió emprender su propia fuente de ingresos, que le permitiera disponer de su propio tiempo para también poder atender a sus hijos, es así que hace medio año compró un torete, lo ha engordado y lo ha vendido, de esa manera pudo obtener una ganancia considerable con la que pudo adquirir cerdos, para luego venderlos a un precio más elevado a parte de ello, ha comprado cuyes, y ahora está aumentando su población. Estos progresos la animan a seguir trabajando de esta forma, por la cual va todas las mañanas a cortar el pasto necesario para alimentar a sus animales. Vicenta trabaja de esta manera porque desea que sus hijos se superen a través del estudio. Solicita un préstamo que invertirá en la compra de más toretes para venderlos luego.
