A loan of $1,500 helped to buy feed.

Rufina's story

Rufina is 56 years old and has an elementary school education. She is married to Juan and has five children who depend on her. Her children help with the milk business and attend school. She started 18 years ago and her initial production was very low. She only had two dairy cows, but over time she increased and now has eight heads of cattle, thanks to her effort and dedication from her family. Her husband, Juan, works as a mason and has 30 years’ experience. He is in charge of building dining rooms and infrastructure for livestock. She will use the money from this loan to buy feed for her dairy cows because this is the time to stock up so there will not be a shortage during the rainy season.
