View original language description ↓
Saida is a woman with a great desire to advance for the benefit of her family. She has a livestock stable that provides her with income and, most of all, the ability to improve her family’s financial situation. She is the mother to a three-year old son, who is her reason for being. Ten years ago she decided to use a small amount of capital to buy two bulls which she raised and fattened. She was then able to sell them at a higher price which allowed her, over time, to increase her working capital. She enjoys her daily tasks of caring for her cows and bulls, and her goal is to one day have a stable of some renown within her valley. Even though she experienced a decrease in business due to high meat prices, she is not to be dissuaded. She has the strength to carry on which is why she is seeking a loan to invest in purchasing well-balanced feed for her livestock.
