A loan of $800 helps to buy three calves.


Maria Yolanda's story

Yolanda, age 43, is a divorced woman who has had a difficult life with her four children. She lives with them in the village of Cristóbal Colon.

Yolanda earns her living working as a laborer and raising calves. In this way, she seeks to be able to give at least a basic education to her children.

She wishes to increase her business. That is why she requests the support of this loan, with which she will buy three calves to raise. Thus she will have better profits to cover the daily needs of her humble family.
