A loan helped to buy another cow and feed.


Esmeralda's story

Esmeralda is 37 years old. She lives with her husband, who works as a security guard, and her two daughters, who are 15 and 10 years old. The house where she lives is rented and this is why one of her priority goals is to buy a house or land to build on.
Esmeralda is a good woman who is honest and hardworking. She works with her mother-in-law raising cattle. She has done this work for 6 years which has allowed her to be part of the economy of the home and support the well-being of her family.
Esmeralda wants to obtain a loan to buy another cow and feed. In this way she aspires to increase her number of cattle with the goal of earning better income to work on building her family's dreams.
