A loan of $1,125 helped to buy calves.


Edilma Del Rocío's story

“Family is the main motor of human existence; there is no greater happiness than the satisfaction of having your loved ones near.” With this phrase, Edilma, 54, states the reason why at her age she still has more than enough drive to work and offer a better future for her grandchildren who are her greatest, most precious treasure.

She starts each day at 5 in the morning. She milks her cows that generate milk for her home and to sell to neighbors. With this activity she’s been able to provide schooling for her grandchildren and hopes to offer them a future with better opportunities. Because of this, she’s asking for a loan to buy dairy calves to generate higher income that will contribute to her family’s well-being. Her greatest dream is to see her family united and happy.
