A loan of $3,200 helped to buy calves.


María Graciela's story

Graciela, 51, is married and has seven children. She has spent all her life in the country learning livestock farming from her parents. She is an energetic entrepreneur who is dedicated to her family which is the main reason she struggles day after day. She is currently requesting a loan to buy calves in order to take advantage of space she has on the family farm where she will raise them to sell at fairs.

Her husband supports her in her work since he has experience in the livestock sector. Graciela hopes to increase her income to support the household economy since her husband is the one who is in charge of everything now. She also wants to grow her livestock business to make it profitable and sustainable. This will improve her family's quality of life.
