Aurora's story

This region is characterized by it national parks, its great variety in flora and fauna and by its hot climate. This climate allows growing some fruits which ripe faster in these conditions such as mangos and melons amongst others.

For a living, Aurora buys cattle which she fattens until they reach the appropriate weight. Later she sells them on local cattle fairs for a market price. She is asking for a loan of 600 000 colones to buy three calves and to fatten the cattle in the procedure described above. She is supporting her family with this business and partially improving their quality of life.

Aurora belongs to Empresa de Crédito Femenina Cantonal de Upala S.A. This loan will help her improve her financial condition. She has also expressed gratitude for the chance to have access to the loan she has received and to carry out the projects of her life.
