A loan of $925 helped food for livestock.


Martha Azucena's story

Mrs Martha M., age 45, is a single mother of four children. She raises livestock and lives in El Guapinol, Esteli. She started off sowing beans and invested her earnings in raising livestock and selling basic grains. She saved a bit of money for buying more livestock. Her work has been very diversified; she has raised hogs and birds, and sown beans. She has tried to do a bit of everything and to take advantage of the lands that she inherited from her parents. She helps her daughters a little with their costs from the income from her cows' production; milk, cream, cheese and curds. She will use this loan for food for her livestock, in order to obtain better results. She will also use a bit of this money to improve her home a little.
