A loan of $1,050 helped to buy cattle to sell.


Mercedes's story

Doña Mercedes, 57-years-old, is married to Señor Ángel and they have two children who are already married. She has been an enterprising woman who likes business and for many years has made a living through the purchase and sale of cattle, and hand-weaving, which she began when her children were small in order to support them and her family and to improve their living conditions. She saw the need to support her husband so that together they could manage to have a place to live and a beautiful house. This is how she began her business, and it is for this reason that she is asking for this loan to buy more cattle to sell. Her dream is to have her family come together and hopefully they will give her the support that she needs.
