Anselma's story

Anselma is 44 years old. She lives with her husband and two children. When she was 12 years old she started working as an employee in a hotel. Later she married her husband and had two children. Since then she has made a living raising livestock and other small animals. To slowly increase the business she does with small animals, she buys in small quantities chickens, pigs, etc. The cattle she has bought from neighbors in her community.

The loan that Anselma is requesting is to buy two cows, to grow little by little the number of cattle she has and to begin a business producing milk to sell in the community. In this way she will be able to increase her earnings. She is a very hard worker, who provides for her children a higher quality of life. She wants to help her children be able to study in high school and university.
