A loan helped to purchase a cow.

Alba Diela's story

Alba lives in the San Cristóbal Bajo community. She comes from a humble background and her source of income is her work as a day laborer and raising animals. Alba, like many people, has felt the hard consequences of the pandemic. She thinks that the only thing that remains is faith in God and working to get ahead, and for this reason she is requesting a loan to purchase a cow. In this way she will boost milk production to be able to deliver it to the dairy or make cheese. She will be able to obtain an income for her two children who suffer from an inability to have a good education due to a lack of technology and absence of face-to-face classes caused by the pandemic.
