A loan helped to buy concentrated feed and hay, so she'll be able to care better for the livestock. She will also invest in the pay for the gathering and processing of the harvests.


Ana Elida's story

Ana is married. She lives with her husband and two adult children. Her family is made up of four people.

Ana makes a living growing basic grains and raising livestock. She started the business 19 years ago. She learned to do these activities from her husband.

The whole family works in the business. Their work schedule for the business is from 6:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.

She says that when she started her business, it was more difficult for her than she though it would be, but with dedication, she has gotten experience.

She is seeking a loan to strengthen her business's inventory. The funds lent to her will help her to buy concentrated feed and hay, so she'll be able to better care for her livestock.

She will also invest in pay for the gathering and processing of the harvests. She hopes that with the investment, her business will improve, and she'll be able to attend to new customers. This way, she will minimize the current economic risk, since it's challenging for her these days to grow her business.

She aspires to having a bigger business, earning the confidence of new customers, and increasing her sales to make the income to sustain her family.
