She is described as being a hardworking, dedicated, and hardworking person. In spite of financial difficulties, she has always sought ways that allow her to advance. For this reason, she is inspired to ask for this loan, which she wants to use to buy farming supplies (manure, pesticide, and fertilizer). In addition, she will buy 2 calves and complement their farming activities with raising cows.

In this way, more opportunities will be opened for her to obtain income and continue providing for her home. In addition, she dreams to expand her crops and increase her head of cattle, since she has plenty of land to do so.
