Norma Estela's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to buy a heifer to continue her work selling cattle.

Norma Estela's story

Norma went to elementary school until 4th grade. She is in a relationship, and her partner is a farmer. She has three children who live with her and are in school. Her parents also live with her.

Norma has been working selling cattle for four years. She learned this business through her father. In addition, she sells milk in her community. Her cattle are 500 meters away from her house, and she gets there by foot. Her father helps her, and they work from 6:00 to 11:00 am.

She will use this loan to buy a heifer to continue her work selling cattle.

She hopes that her business will continue to improve so she can provide for her children. She wants them to go to school and she is sure she will make good use of her earnings to fulfill her plans.
