Diana Marcela's story

19-year-old Diana is a young country girl surrounded by nature and eager to get ahead with her daughter, who is her motor of life and her reason for being.

Diana started working in the raising cattle business since she was a child, as it is a job that she likes very much and that generates an income for her home.

Diana has observed that her entrepreneurship has supported her family a lot, and she is asking for help to buy two heifers, salt, molasses, formulated feed and vitamins. In this way her animals are very well cared for, obtaining a higher price in the market when selling them.
