A loan helped to purchase two heifers, salt, and vitamins.

Karina Pilar's story

Karina is a young single mother, 22 years old. She lives with her parents in the rural sector of El Falso. She was able to finish her secondary education and, due to the lack of resources, has not managed to continue her studies at the university.

Today, she seeks to be able to establish a source of income which will allow her to get sustenance for her daughter. Karina began to raise cattle three years ago with the help of her parents.

Today, she has the knowledge and responsibility to continue boosting her business with her own means. So, she asks for a loan to be able to get two more heifers and to purchase salt and vitamins. In this way, she will manage to improve the profits of her business a little more, since her goal for the future is to be able to have at least ten dairy cows.
