Cristina Elizabeth's story

Cristina is a single mother who comes from the El Chamizo community in the canton of Montufar. She lives with her two children in a rented home.

With no formal qualifications and only agricultural experience, Cristina decided to start raising cattle alongside earning a living as a day laborer.

Cristina is a committed mother, and her work allows her to provide for her children. She is applying for a loan to buy a cow, salt, feed, and vitamins. This will help Cristina to improve her income through milk production.

Cristina's goals are to buy a piece of land for planting and to build her own home.
