For more than six years, Sra. Irma has been engaged in the sale of milk. She owns 4 cows and 2 heifers. Her daily milk sales reach 30 litres. She has an established clientele from the area around her home. Irma is a very hardworking and responsible person and needs this loan in order to improve the quality of her animals and obtain a greater quantity of milk.
