A loan of $900 helped to buy a dairy cow.

Alexi Maricela's story

Alexi is married and lives with her husband and two children. The different household chores involve raising livestock and pigs, and also processing milk to make sufficient dairy products for family consumption and sales to neighbors. She works from 6:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. and learned the trade from her father.

In an effort to increase her livestock and have more dairy products, Alexi will use the loan to buy a dairy cow so she will have extra income to help pay off the loan and also to cover family expenses. Her goal is to have a business that is profitable enough to insure her children will have a better future as professionals.
