A loan of $400 helped purchase a heifer for fattening and breeding.


Gloria Del Carmen's story

Gloria is 46 years old. She is single and has three grown children. She only went to school through the first grade as she had to help her mother with the housework.

Gloria is a housekeeper who does domestic work in private homes, and in the afternoons she runs a business selling tortillas. She is familiar with agricultural work and helps her father work the land. It was from her parents that she learned everything she knows today.

The loan will be used to purchase a heifer for fattening and breeding. With time, she hopes to triple her production and maybe one day be able to build her own home.
