A loan of $1,350 helped to buy a dairy cow.

Maria Rubiela's story

Despite her advanced age, Maria has never stopped working and fighting for her children. Even though the majority of them are now adults, her maternal love doesn't allow her to separate herself from them and leave them lacking what they need.

She is a hard-working agricultural producer with ample experience in the handling of different crops and animal husbandry. Currently, she has a small piece of land which she has managed to plant potatoes and beans on, and she also has a dairy cow. She sells everything that she produces and that is how she gets the resources that she needs to survive.

Her biggest challenge has been the state of her health, but it doesn't prevent her from always happily caring for and working her land. She is asking for a loan to invest in a milk cow which will allow her to increase her dairy production. This loan will give her an opportunity to add capital to her business, giving it a large boost and allowing her to enjoy more stable profits.
