Maria Lucrecia raises and sells animals, which she has done ever since she was a little girl and used to help her father. She is now married and her husband works as a construction assistant. She raises animals to contribute financially to the household and to help earn enough to build their house and pay daily living expenses.

For the past five years, she has had pigs and just one cow, from which she sells milk. She is requesting a loan to help her invest in another dairy cow. She also needs capital to purchase food and supplements to help care for the cows and to aid in producing more milk.
