A loan of $500 helped to purchase bull calves.

Maria Magdalena's story

Magdalena is 43 years old. She is married and has seven children. She lives with her husband and children in the canton of Chillanes, in Bolívar Province.

She belongs to the Azanloma solidarity group in Cantón Chillanes. Its members work in agriculture, raising animals, and selling products. The community is located about thirty minutes from the co-op in Chillanes.

Magdalena works as a farmer, growing beans and corn, and raising animals like cattle, pigs, and chickens. She is requesting this loan to purchase bull calves. She makes her purchases in the town of Chillanes.

Her dream is to buy land in a different sector and give her children an education. The challenge she faces is the presence of pests and late blight on the crops. In her free time, she enjoys being with her family and participating in the local festivities.
