A loan helped Purchase two more llamas to increase the size of her livestock.

Teofila's story

Teofila is 48 years of age, and she lives with her husband and 4 children, who are 18, 16, 13 and 10 years old and help her with her business.

Since she was very young, she was related to the breeding of animals. Her parents were great livestock breeders in their area; and since she got married, Teofila saw in livestock breeding her best of option for making a living. It has been approximately 25 years that she has been fully dedicated to her animals, which are beautiful llamas. She goes out to graze them every morning to the surrounding pastures in her community, which to her is the part of her work she most enjoys. The most difficult thing is to feed them during the winter, since the cold weather affects her normal routine.

With the loan she is requesting, she would like to increase the size of her livestock by acquiring a couple of additional llamas to guarantee the well-being of her family.
