A loan helped to buy more calves, heifers, cows, compound animal feed, and vitamins.


Dayra Mishell's story

Dayra is 19 years old, single and lives with her mother in a humble home of a relative. She is a happy, dynamic and very entrepreneurial young woman. Her mother leaves home every day looking for clothes to wash. With the little revenue she gets, she provides the daily bread-and-butter for her and her siblings.

Seeing all of her mother's suffering, she decided to start her business breeding and selling livestock, an activity she does while she takes care of her sibings. On the weekends, she is completing her secondary education online. In this way, she has enough time to care for her animals, ensuring that they get a good price when she sells them.

Dayra wishes to continue increasing the number of her animals which is why she is requesting help to buy more calves, heifers, cows, compound animal feed, and vitamins. In this way, her revenue will grow, which will allow her to continue supporting her mother whom she admires so much. She wishes to decrease the weight her mother carries by being the only one to provide for her household.
