A loan of $800 helped to buy a dairy cow.

Matilde's story

Sra. Matilde is a long-time client who has worked with Emprender since 2002. She was previously a member of the solidarity group “Clavel” (Carnation) and is now receiving an individual loan.

Doña Matilde was one of many people affected by the landslide in Callapa. Her home was destroyed since it was located in the disaster area. Nevertheless, Doña Matilde continues to press forward. Her dream is to rebuild her home, which will be a great cost.

Matilde sells milk throughout the southern district and to a company that buys milk. The loan she is requesting will be used to buy a dairy cow so that she can earn more money for her two children.
