Herminia's story

Herminia is 68-years old. She has been married for 50 years to Anastacio, who is 73-years old. She has 4 children with him and all of them are adults that she supported with a lot of work. Herminia has worked selling agricultural products since she got married. She also has a dairy cow. Thanks to that, she sells milk, cheese and has pigs that every now and again she sells the meat from. She has hens that produce eggs.

She is a very lovely woman. Thanks to that, all of her children went to school and finished their degrees. Now they help her to have a better life. She is asking for this loan to be able to invest it into buying animals to raise, like pigs, and food. This way, she can keep going with her sales as she has been doing. She is thankful for the opportunity to be able to continue with her venture.
