Dafina is a 41-year-old married mother of three children, who are 18, 10 and 6. She lives in the northern part of the country, and livestock has been her primary type of activity for the past 12 years.

Dafina is applying for a loan for the first time, and she wants to build a stable with it. “The cold has just started and I’ve got to hurry up and build a stable for my animals. The heavy rains and the storms have almost destroyed what I had previously built very primitively for them. Other than promising lenders that I will pay them back and that I will appreciate their help immensely, I can’t say much at this point. I need their help,” Dafina is quoted as saying.
