A loan of $1,500 helped to buy soybean skin and fodder for her milk cow.


Eva's story

Eva is 48 years old, is single, and lives with her two children. She has raised cows for 10 years. From the milk the cows produce, she makes quesillos (tortillas with a cream cheese filling), which she then sells. In this way, she earns money, selling in different markets in the city. She is a responsible person and has a strong desire to better herself. Her children have what they need for the demands of school, and she always looks to their future well-being. Because of the strong rains, she had unexpected expenses and now she cannot count on green fodder. As a result, she has to buy supplies (nutritious food and bran) so that her production level does not diminish. For this, she requests a loan that will be used to buy soybean skin and fodder to feed her cow. In this way, she will not have to decrease the level of her income, and she will be able to satisfy her family’s needs.
