A loan helped to purchase a pregnant cow.

Maira's story

Maira is 40 years old, married, and has two children. She and her spouse work at milking on a nearby farm to their home. With the experience they acquired in the work, they saw the opportunity to have their own cattle and, so, they began to purchase some heifers with their savings and, in this way, they have continued growing.

Maira asks for a loan to purchase a pregnant cow, which will help her continue improving her business since it is an important source of income which helps her to pay for her humble household's necessities. As a mother, she wants her children to study and have a better future.
