The county of Nagarote in the city of Leon is characterized by the very important role that cattle and agriculture play in the community's economy. Marta Lopez L. has had a business rearing cattle and cows to obtain milk to sell it and thereby support her young son.

Nowadays she urgently needs to acquire more cows to raise and to milk. It is because of this that she is looking for the support of Ceprodel; to get some credit in order to move forward and give her family better living conditions which they so deserve.
