A loan of $400 helped to buy 400 lbs. of soy flour and animal feed for her cattle.

Erika Guadalupe Yazmin's story

Erika, 28, is a single, hard-working young lady who enjoys caring for her cattle. Six years ago, when she arrived where she lives, she and her father began buying dairy cattle. Now they have five cows and she has learned from her father how to manage the business, while also taking courses in livestock farming.

The loan she is requesting through Fundación Campo is to buy 400 lbs. of soy flour. She will use the rest of the money to buy animal feed for her cattle. Through the support of the loan the borrower will be able to buy the supplies she needs to give her livestock better feed and also increase her milk production.

Erika's income will improve with the increase in milk production because of a better diet for her cattle. She will also be able to make dairy products for family consumption, which will improve their diet.

Her plans for the future include acquiring more experience in managing livestock and having more animals to raise.
