A loan of $725 helped she will purchase several heads of livestock.


Betty's story

Betty, who is 43 years old, and her small son live with a family member. For 10 years she has made her living purchasing and selling animals. Her brothers help her verify that the animals she acquires are in good health. Each time she goes to the animal commercialization sites, she is sure to ask for her purchase record, which allows her to calculate her profits. She then sells the purchased animals in the most well known livestock markets in the area. This business has been very profitable for her because she hardly invests any money in the maintenance of the animals; she only has them in her care for a few days, until the weekend. Furthermore, the profit she receives for each head of livestock is considerable. In the future, she wants to increase her working capital and be able to purchase a greater quantity of animals. This is her third opportunity to receive a loan, and she promises to be very responsible with her payments. She thanks all those who made the loan possible. It will be very useful to her in advancing her business. Betty plans to invest the requested money in the purchase of additional heads of livestock, and in that way she will increase her working capital.
