A loan of $1,450 helped to buy a milk cow.

Lidia Margarita's story

Lidia is married, and her husband is the one participating in the current loan request. She has 3 children, aged 22, 20 and 18, for whom she provides both moral and economic support. For more than 10 years, she has worked in agriculture and ranching. For this reason she is requesting the loan to buy a milk cow, because with this she will be able to increase her income a little more and give her children a better life. Her husband's work is public transportation, but since his vehicle runs on gasoline, he doesn't have much net profit for his family. Since she was very young, the borrower worked in farming together with her parents, whom she continues to help with the planting and harvest of their crops. She is from a humble background and values what she has, since thanks to the effort and determination of herself and her husband, they have been able to get ahead and were able to build the little house where they currently live.
