A loan of $2,825 helped a member to buy nutritionally balanced cattle feed.


Cruz De Espinas Group's story

Yaneth Felicia is 27 years old and a member of the “Cruz de Espinas” (Cross of Thorns) communal bank. She is a single mother of a 4-year-old son. She lives in Matahuasi, Huancayo.

Yaneth and her brother César were orphaned while still very little due to the rampant terrorism in Perú in the 90s. Since their childhood they had to work caring for cattle belonging to nearby neighbors. They worked hard and put much effort into their work and they currently own cattle of their own. They want to increase the size of their herd to raise and fatten up. The loan she’s asking for is to buy nutritionally balanced cattle feed.

The loan is for 500 new soles.
