A loan of $1,000 helped buy calves.


Lea Mercedes's story

Lea is 41 years old and from the community of Jicarito in León. She is married and works in agriculture farming corn and raising cattle. Since she was young, her parents taught her to work in agriculture and she had her first business when she was 22 years old. She planted her first crops with the help of her husband and brother and has been living by these means ever since. Later on she decided to raise cattle to sell. She is asking for a loan to buy calves as there is a lot of demand in this business and it generates good money that will allow her to buy more land to farm and help with raising the cattle. She plans to continue buying, raising, and reselling cattle.
