A loan of $700 helped pasture cultivation.


Ayda Mercedes's story

Ayda is 53 years old and lives with her husband who carries out farming tasks together with their 4 grown-up children. They work together to help develop their production unit and strengthen the family finances. They live in the El Nispero community and carry out different activities, especially cattle raising but also farming activities such as sowing basic grains. These are for used for family consumption only since their main source of income is milk production which comes from their cattle. They need this loan in order to cultivate pasture on their farm and thereby have the right conditions for feeding their herd of cattle. Their biggest dream is to be able to improve their living conditions and to ensure that their family does not lack food.
