Lina Marcela's story

Lina is a young 24-year-old farmer, that is employed as an agricultural producer in the cultivation of flowers in the region where she lives. Additionally, on her own, she is in the production and selling of milk, a trade she does in the company of her husband that generates additional income to cover the household expenses and provide sustenance to her 4-year-old daughter.
With the aim of strengthening her own business, she wants to buy two dairy cows with the goal of increasing production and having more liquid to offer in the market, achieving better income for the family. For that she is requesting her first loan.
Lina, with her spirit of perseverance and tenacity, continues working hard alternating both jobs, as her greatest goal is to have the capacity to provide her daughter a better economic well being, a good education and also aims to improve her income to enjoy a good quality of life with her husband and their daughter.
