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

A loan helped to buy a cow to fatten and sell.

Berta Julia's story

Berta is 50 years old. Her parents didn't give her the opportunity to study because of their economic situation. She is in a relationship and her partner works in agriculture and commerce. She has two children who already live on their own.

Berta sells corn and yucca that she grew herself. Additionally, she cares for the cattle. She works from 6:00 am to 5:00 pm.

Thanks to her two previous loans, she has been able to continue working and has already finished repaying them. She needs a new loan to buy a cow to fatten and sell.

Berta dreams of having more cattle and making good use the earnings of their jobs to pay off the loan.
