A loan of $1,000 helped to buy a dairy cow.

Carmen Rosa's story

Carmen raises cattle for milk production. She has been in this business for one year, since she got married. She has four cows and she delivers their milk to her mother-in-law who then sells it as yoghurt. Carmen is requesting this loan to buy a dairy cow which will help her family income. Her family consists of herself, her husband and her four-month old son. They currently live with her in-laws but her dream is to buy a plot of land and have a small house of her own built. Carmen is a young and hard-working person. She is grateful to the institution for the support they have offered her.
