A loan of $1,200 helped buying a dairy cow.

Alina's story

Alina is 42 years old and has 4 children, aged 12, 9, 4 and 3 with her husband Silverio. They are a family with few economic resources, and they currently do not have a home of their own. They live in her parents' house, which only has 2 bedrooms for the entire family.

Alina's main work is producing raw milk. She currently has only 4 milk cows, since she is just starting out with this activity. Her husband works in construction. They are very responsible and dedicated to their work; both are working hard with the goal of obtaining a house of their own.

The loan will be used to buy another milk cow, thus increasing the amount of milk produced and raising their income level.

Among their goals and dreams are having a house of the their own with rooms for each of their children, thus allowing the family to be more comfortable. Other goals are expanding their milk production and seeing their 4 children pursue professional careers.
