A loan of $1,400 helped to buy cattle and increase her production capacity.

Maria Isabel's story

Four years ago Maria started to work raising cattle and producing milk. She was motivated principally by the need to generate resources for her family that would be able to offer them a better quality of life, since the income her husband earned was not enough to support their household with four children. As she already had experience in this type of work, she used some savings to buy her first cow and from then on she started working. Now she can contribute financial resources that allow her family to have a better quality of life. Seeking to keep growing, Maria is looking for a loan to buy cattle and increase her production capacity.

Her dream is to continue with this type of work and generate resources that allow her to improve the quality of life for her home and offer a better education to her four children.
