A loan helped to buy cattle to raise.


Petronila Del Carmen's story

Petronila is 39 years old. She is in a relationship and has five children aged 23, 18, 16, 13 and 7 years old. She never had the opportunity to study at school.

Petronila makes a living in agriculture, raising livestock and selling clothing. Her partner and children help her with the work as she is busy all day.

She needs the loan to buy cattle to raise. The loan will be very useful as she will expand her herd of cattle as in the last years she has been supported by five loans. Three of them are completed and only the most recent is not.

Petronila dreams of expanding her cattle business and increase her production of milk. She also wants to support her children's education as much as she can.
