A loan of $1,500 helped to buy four steers to fatten.

Ana Cecilia's story

Ana, 24, is in a relationship and has a son in kindergarten. She could only study up to the seventh grade. Her partner is a truck driver. All three of them live in the same house.

Ana has a 10-year experience raising and fattening cattle, an activity she learned from her father, who also liked this type of animals. She buys the cattle at the different fairs or livestock markets, travelling around 5 km to the closest one. Once she reaches an agreement, she goes back home. She wakes up at 5 am every morning to feed them and taken them to graze until 3 pm, when she takes them back home.

She is requesting a loan to buy four steers. Depending on her needs, she plans to fatten them and sell them at a good price. With her business, Ana hopes to give his son a good education and leave him a good inheritance.
