Naideth Esther's loan finished fundraising, but these other borrowers need your support

A loan helped to buy rams and little sheep in order to increase her inventory and strengthen her sales.

Naideth Esther's story

Naideth is an honest, dedicated, humble, and enterprising woman who raises sheep and goats, a business that was born out of economic necessity and in the face of the lack of opportunities in the zone, since she lives in the municipality of San Antonio de Palmito, a sector much affected by the armed conflict. As a result, the [loan] arrangement represents a greater risk.

Naideth is applying for a loan to buy rams and little sheep. Her goal is to increase her inventory to strengthen her sales.

The principal adversities that the client faces in her business are drought, the high cost of supplies, and strong competition in the sector.

Thus she is applying for the help of a loan.
