A loan of $1,975 helped to buy a dairy cow.


Erika Yaned's story

Erika is a farmer who has been working off the land since she was young, having been taught by her parents. Thanks to this, she now owns dairy cattle whose products she sells, be it milk or curds and cheese. This generates enough of an income to support her family, comprised of her husband and her two children who she has brought up with effort and dedication.

Erika is currently requesting a loan to buy a dairy cow which is being sold at a good price. With this purchase she can increase her yield to 50 litres of milk daily, which would give her the opportunity to sell more products and receive a greater income for her family. With her drive and perseverance Erika would like to keep working hard to make every one of her dreams reality, such as acquiring more heads of dairy cattle to offer employment opportunities to other people in the region. For her this would make her business more profitable and ensure a more profitable and successful future for her children.
