A loan of $300 helped to buy cattle.


Zulma Arely's story

Zulma raises cattle. She lives with her husband and her three children, who are 13, 9, and 5 years old. She lives in San Rafael Oriente, in the department of San Miguel. She and her husband have been working with cattle for a long time. They work together to perform all of the daily activities required by the cattle.

She is requesting a loan to buy cattle. Her goal is increase her number of animals; this will provide more stability to the business and she will have the opportunity to earn more income to provide for the necessities. Her children are still small and they require a lot of support.

She dreams of becoming a big cattle supplier, along with her husband, and of having abundant profits so she can give her children the best.
