A loan of $1,000 helps to purchase salt, balanced feed, and vitamins for her cattle and to boost the sale of cosmetics.


Carmen Yolanda's story

Yolanda is an entrepreneurial woman, 54 years old. She lives with her spouse and children who are now adults.

Yolanda has worked her whole life raising livestock since she belongs to a family from the countryside, where she grew up and finished primary school. When she got married, she went to live in the city, but she did not neglect her business, with which she has achieved great things such as the support of her children in education.

Yolanda asks for a loan to invest in the purchase of salt, balanced feed, and vitamins for her cattle, as well as to boost a new undertaking of selling cosmetics. All of Yolanda's efforts are focused on helping her children and saving for old age.
