Hilda's story

Hilda is 27 years old and married. Her husband is a bricklayer. They live in their own home and do not have children.

Hilda is dedicated to her crops, as well as grazing and fattening her cattle. She has worked in agriculture for about eight years. Hilda is requesting a loan to buy corn seeds and a few heads of cattle. She hopes to buy some land in the future to use as pasture so that she can provide more food for her cattle.
