A loan of $1,150 helped to purchase cattle to raise and sell, and so be able to generate additional income for her household.


Myriam Lucelly's story

Myriam is someone who has always focused on providing the best for her family's well-being. Is is for this reason that she always looked for ways to share with her husband in generating income for their household, as the income that her husband earns is not sufficient to be able to cover the expenses for their two children, aged 1 year and 9 years old.

Myriam currently works growing vegetables, which she does behind her home. She sells them at a very good price, and this has helped her in contributing financially to her household. With the goal of being able to take advantage of her household's land, Myriam is hoping that a loan will provide her with the possibility of purchasing cattle to raise and sell, and in this way she will be able to earn extra income for her household.

Myriam hopes that in this way she will be able to contribute a larger financial amount to her household, and in this way she can provide her family with a better quality of life. Myriam hopes that her children will be able to have access to a quality education, and that in the future she will be able to provide them with a home, a good education, and financial stability that will allow them to progress in life.

Myriam espera que de esta manera pueda contribuir con un aporte económico mayor a su hogar, y de esta manera pueda ofrecerle a su familia una mejor calidad de vida. Además, Myriam espera que sus hijos puedan acceder a una educación de calidad y en un futuro poder ofrecerles una vivienda, una buena educación y una estabilidad económica que les permita progresar.
