Asunta Q., 38, has been married to Sergio Alba Quiroz for 15 years. They have two sons and a daughter who go to the local school, which is two blocks from their home. They live in an area that is known for its dairy farming and agriculture. She lives in her own house.
Asunta has been a dairy farmer for a long time. She has done this since she was a little girl. First, she helped her mother take care of the livestock. Little by little she was learning. That’s how she was able to buy her own dairy cows. She takes all of her milk production to a local milk company that makes all kinds of dairy products.
She needs a loan to finish building her house. That way she can give her family a better quality of life. The house will be made of better construction material.
