Adriana is the only one who brings an income home. Her husband had an operation in his skull and brain about three years ago and, since then, he hasn’t been able to do much.

“There are times that I break down in tears because I carry this entire burden. I’ve got to generate an income for my family of two school-aged children and a sick husband, by putting too much physical labor into it. There are so many days that I feel very down, but this is not helpful and I know it, so I try to lift my spirits and keep going in order to provide for my family,” said Adriana, with her eyes full in tears.

Adriana wants to buy a dairy cow from her neighbor who is immigrating soon and he is selling it at a cheaper price, thus, she wants to take advantage of the deal. She also wants to buy some feed for her animals with this loan.
