Eunice's story

Eunice is a lively and resilient woman. She is from the Kapsowar area, an area that is very affected by poverty, inequality and social conflict. With work and effort and without complaint, she wants to bring her family ahead. Eunice has spent the past 10 years of her life farming. She sells milk, poultry, and vegetables produced on her farm. She also engages in a personal business to make ends meet. Eunice is a go-getter and has a great desire to succeed in life. Of all the activities she involves herself in, dairy farming is closest to her heart. She enjoys waking up every morning to go and milk her cows and feed them with fodder that has high nutrient value. She is so keen and close with her cows, she has named them, which makes Eunice very proud, and she feels fulfilled. Dairy farming being a very profitable business venture, Eunice wants to take full advantage. She would like to expand her dairy business, but the biggest challenge she faces is a lack of capital to grow with. She is requesting a loan which she will use to buy a quality breed of dairy cow. Eunice has grass, so feeding the cows will never be a challenge. She also owns an expansive piece of land, and the excess space will be productively used once she acquires the additional dairy cow. The "exotic" cow she will buy will produce between 8 and 10 liters of milk per day, and this will translate to more income and profits. The profits from milk selling will allow Eunice to grow her business further, by starting to package milk and by processing it into other dairy products. In addition, she will benefit from the organic manure from the cow. She projects that she will be able to start a bio-gas plant at her farm, which will save her money in fuel costs. With your loan, all that Eunice dreams of is a secure future for her family. Eunice awaits your kindness.
