A loan of $1,700 helped to buy a cow to increase her milk production and respond to the market demand.

Amparo Del Socorro's story

For approximately 20 years Amparo has devoted herself to doing farm work. This is thanks to her father, who devoted himself to these business activities, because he taught her this work when she was very young.

Amparo is currently married and has two children. She and her husband grow vegetables, and they are milk producers. Her husband manages the crops because he has a bit more knowledge than she does in that area. Amparo takes care of the dairy cows and milks them. This way she contributes to the generation of income to support the household expenses.

Thanks to the good care that Amparo gives her cow, the cow has given her very good quality milk. That is why her customers like her product so much.

With the thought of increasing her milk production Amparo is looking for a loan to buy a cow to increase her milk production. Then she will be able to respond to the market demand. This way her monthly income will increase considerably.

Also, Amparo hopes that with greater income her two children and her husband will have a better quality of life and opportunities to progress financially.
