A loan helped to purchase a pair of steers to raise them during the winter season and sell them in a year.


Bernarda Del Carmen's story

Bernarda is 35 years old and studied to the 1st year of secondary school. She is partnered, her partner works in agriculture and raising animals, and she has two children who live at home and are studying.

Bernarda works with cattle, she has done so for 8 years, and she learned it from her family. She decided to do it seeking an income. In addition, she sells on the weekends at the soccer fields. Before, they were only household tasks, and in her current work she travels a distance of 2 km to arrive and she goes by foot or in a cart. Her life partner helps her and her children do when they don't have classes.

The loan that she is requesting she needs to purchase a pair of steers to raise them during the winter season and sell them in a year.

She dreams of her children continuing to study, and that they have a professional degree and better opportunities in life.
