A loan of $600 helped to buy three young bulls in order to fatten them with grazing, and to buy vitamins and anti-parasite medications for her animals.


Adela Del Carmen's story

Adela is 36 years old. She is married and has three minor children. She has been raising cattle for ten years. She also works as a salesperson in the cafeteria of the school in her community. But the salary is very low. For that reason she also buys young bulls to fatten with grazing, in order to obtain other income, although for this activity her husband helps her.

She buys the animals at the street market. To get there she gets on a truck that takes 45 minutes going, and another 45 minutes coming back.

The loan she is requesting from Fundación Campo is to buy three young bulls, in order to fatten them with grazing, and to buy vitamins and anti-parasite medications for her animals. With the investment, she will have another source of income at her disposal. What she gets at the cafeteria is very little for feeding her family and for her children's education.

Adela intends to save, in order to offer her children a university education.
