A loan of $1,550 helped to buy a dairy cow in order to have the production capacity to respond to her customers’ orders.


Sandra Patricia's story

Sandra has two children, ages 15 and 19. In order to generate income, which she needs in her household to support her two children, she has three dairy cows. They produce milk daily that she sells in her municipality. She learned this business activity from who parents, who also devoted themselves to this work. Thanks to this she learned to work at their side when she was very young.

Therefore, she has a lot of experience that allows her to offer her customers a very good quality product. Thanks to the growing sales in her business, the financial difficulties in her household have been improving considerably. Nevertheless, she still wishes to be able to offer her oldest child access to a university education. To do so she needs greater income.

Fortunately, she has been getting very good orders. With the intent of responding to the large orders, she is looking for a loan to buy a dairy cow. She will then have the production capacity to respond to her customers’ orders.

Her biggest dream is to manage for her children to have access to a university education, and that they get ahead. She also dreams of, in the future, being able to have her own house and enjoying a more stable home life.
