A loan of $1,375 helped to buy a milk cow.


Maria Yamile Del Carmen's story

Farm work is one of the most difficult tasks to perform today, due to the great effort which must be made in order to progress. But Maria, a woman who has never given up despite the weather or difficult circumstances, is always ready to get the resources needed for her family. She gets up early in the morning to look after her business of selling milk obtained from her own cows. She has been gradually building up the number of animals which she has. She wants to increase her working capital to ensure the sustainability of her business. This is why she is asking for a loan in order to buy a new cow that allows her to increase production and improve her income. This loan will give her the opportunity to grow as a business owner and as a person.
