A loan helped to buy a dairy cow, salt, and molasses.


Maria Teresa's story

Maria is 50 years old and married. Her husband is a farm labourer. Maria is raising one child, 15-year-old Daniel.

A lack of income for supporting the family drove Maria to find another source of income for the family and, three years ago, she started producing milk. This work has brought about happier times in her life.

Maria wants to increase production but needs to buy a dairy cow, salt, and molasses. With these items, she can increase the number of litres of milk produced and increase her income.

Maria wants to raise her son and leave him something so that he can continue with her work.
