A loan of $2,600 helped to purchase two dairy cows.

Blanca Libia's story

Blanca is 63 years old, married and is the mother of 4 children. All her life has been spent in the fields, where today she has crops of gooseberries and marigolds. The harvests are sold to a customer located in the city. Additionally, she supplements her income with the production of milk, for which she owns 6 cows. The milk is sold to a neighboring town that has freezing tanks to store it. In this way she generates sufficient income to support the household. The client characterizes herself by her strength, her dynamism and her positive attitude with which she faces life, which drove her to request a loan to buy 2 dairy cows. With this purchase, she will be able to replace two animals that are in a period of gestation. This will allow her to maintain production at the same level and she will not lose the income that they generate. In this way, Blanca wants to continue tirelessly working and continuing to advance in her businesses and hopes to be able to achieve her great dream of growing to a minimum of a 10 dairy cow production to guarantee a ensure better profits and offer her family a better quality of life.
