The family is involved in an agricultural business. In particular, they have a plot of land, where maize is grown. In addition, Salome owns a vineyard.
The family picks grapes and produces wine, which is sold locally. Salome owns two milk cows and a calf. She milks the cows every day and produces cheese and sells it at the local market.
Besides her business, she works as a nurse and gets a monthly income. Salome is very hard-working woman, with a great desire to get ahead.
She requested a loan to build a kitchen. Salome had planned to sell a cow to purchase building materials. With this credit, she will be able to keep the cow and buy necessary things for the kitchen. She will continue her dairy business and sell cheese again. This will increase the income of the family.
With the increased income, Salome plans to purchase calves and expand her business. She awaits your support.
