A loan of $1,675 helped to upgrade a cooling tank.

Ligia Del Socorro's story

Ligia, 63, says that her children and grandchildren are her main motivation to get up every day and give her all to her work. She has been a farmer for 40 years.

After the death of her husband she took charge of the household, continuing with the family's milk production and sales business.

Now she thanks God for her work, because it has allowed her to provide for her 3 children and give them a good education.

At this time, Ligia is requesting a loan to modify a part of her cooling tank where she stores her milk. With this investment, she hopes to increase her income, because due to the lack of space her milk goes bad too quickly, which at times has caused her considerable losses.

Ligia's dreams are to build her business into a large company, and to generate enough income so that she can have a quality life when she is older.
