Julia's story

Julia is a great woman, next to a great man, who helps in his work as a farmer. They join forces to succeed economically for the good of their family, especially for their small daughter. This work took more participation from Julia when her husband was brutally attacked by a bull after returning from his ranch. It left him seriously injured and he had to be taken to the hospital in the nearest city where they could take care of him. Fortunately, he did not have any major complications but there were two weeks when her husband could not get up, and it was then that Julia took over caring for their ranches. Since then, they have both worked in their fields and both want to be able to progress as farmers to provide what is necessary for her small daughter and it is for her that they are encouraged to apply for a loan to buy fertilizer for their land. This couple hopes that will help them fulfill their desire.
